swim, swim, swim

Posted Aug 21 2012 10:08pm

I’m having an exceptionally long week at work this week (yes, I realize it’s only Tuesday), and I’m doing a lot of extra work right now on top of my usual work load. This pretty much means that my workouts are the absolute last thing I want to do, because all I want to do is face plant into my couch when I get off work. However instead of curling up and going to sleep at 5pm this afternoon like I wanted to do, I went to the gym and swam instead. And as much as I really didn’t want to do this, I ended up having a great swim. Guess that whole “you never regret a workout” thing still rings true, eh?!

All in all, the whole thing took me right at 40 minutes. This swim, like the majority of swims that I have, kicked my butt. I’m not sure if it’s the chlorine in the water or just the physical act of swimming, but it always makes me so tired. My body is crying for some sleep right now, which is where I’m headed now…
