Swim Success

I really pushed myself to the max at my swim tonight.  I literally swam nonstop for an hour.....didn't take my usual 1-2 min breaks. My endurance definitely improved lately.  Exhaling is extremely important in swimming, folks!  It improved my speed & helped me learn bilateral breathing.  Exhalation prevents a buoyant chest & reduces the need...

Adios Remington

Phew!!  I just came back from my 9PM swim.  I was satisfied with my efforts today....62 lengths (31 laps) in 50-55min. I tend to wash my hair late at night, esp since I frequently go night swimming now.  In the morning.....a head of MESS!   I straighten my hair every other day at the least (i... Continue Reading →

Noob Cappuccino

Thank goodness it's Friday.  It's been a long week.

I haven't had a good cardio session since Tuesday night.  Eeeek!!!  I curse you tendon & TOM!  My tendon is bothering me again... Continue Reading →

New Swim Regime

I normally do 35min of speed-walking from the train station to my house everyday.  Then I do 12-30min body weight training (courtesy of bodyrock.tv) before bed.  Lately, I have been driving to the train station & haven't been doing any workouts due to my tendon injury.   I have decided to start swimming more during the...

Rainy Monday

Here we go....it's Monday again and it's raining ... double thumbs down!!  😦 My dog hates rain...especially thunderstorms.  We taught her ever since she was a puppy to stay downstairs.  She follows this rule except everytime it rains, she would come upstairs to find us.  I think somehow in her mind, upstairs is her sanctuary.  To be...
