Swim Lesson

I had a swim lesson on Monday night. I'm 33 years old and I am just learning to swim. Yes, I know how to float and move around in the water, but I've never learned to properly swim. I had a 1/2 hour lesson on Monday night that taught me the basics of the proper way to swim. Boy do I have some work to do! I worked on it in my swim workout yesterday and at times I was confident and at other times I was very doubtful of my possibility of completing the triathlon next month. Towards the end of the workout I started to get the hang of it but I still need practice.

I'm anxious to get out and run tomorrow. It's been a while since I've run more than 2.25 miles. I didn't get to run on Sunday due to time constraints so tomorrow hopefully will be 3 miles. I'm doing a 5k on Saturday morning and REALLY looking forward to the race. It's a small one, but I love the atmosphere of a race.

On a side note, my brother and sister who both are training with the Couch to 5k program are doing an awesome job. My brother is up to a 20 minute run, which with his height should be close to 2.5 miles. My sister is hitting a milestone this weekend too. She's going to run 2 miles this week, as far as she'd run when training years ago. I'm so proud of both of them for taking on this challenge. And this is without me urging them to. They came to me interested. Working on a race day for my brother. My sister and I are running in the TwinsDay festival 5k in Twinsburg the first weekend of August. I can't wait to run with them!
