We started of with a normal Saturday Community WOD followed by our new tradition of going out to eat/drink beer afterwards. Hahaha, so healthy!
Sunday was the day I started my swim practicing and I wasn't really sure what to expect as far as my ability to swim. I started off with a 400 meter and I was pretty much out of breath and sweating. Not the best sign.
I decided to swim a 400, a 200 with kick board, 400, 200 with only arms, and then one final 400. It ended up being about an hour work out and it gave me a good idea of what I needed to get to before the upcoming triathlon.
The next day was Monday (July 4th) and since there was no programmed WOD, Dennis and I decided to take advantage of the child care and putz around in the box. My objective was to complete a 10,000 Meter Row (for the Rowing Club) and Dennis was going to work on his Jerk.
I've never rowed a 10k before, only a 5k and I wasn't sure what to expect. I asked Dennis to put on Britney's album and to blast it while I rowed. 3..2..1..GO! I was off. I knew I didn't want to stop to take any breaks so I kept my pace around slower than normal, but aimed to keep it pretty steady.
I kinda zoned in and out of rowing, singing to the songs when I had the breath and just trying to stay steady. Which I did. The weirdest thing was the sweat. I was sweating like crazy. My legs, my arms, my face. The other issue I was having was my grip. I had to keep readjusting because of my grip and the sweat and towards the end I could feel the blisters forming.
But I survived and it felt pretty good. I was happy to have completed it and my time wasn't too bad. Just over 45 minutes and now I had a new time to beat.
After our little work out, we went home and got ready to celebrate Independence day in Leesburg. The weather was kinda MEH but a few friends met us out and we ended up having a really good time.
Happy Fourth of July Everybody! I am once again so happy with where I am and all the amazing people I've met along the way. Keep the good times coming!
