Today I weighed in on the Fitbit Aria scale at 284.2 lbs with 22.6% body fat.
This morning at Lake Norman YMCA, I completed a 1500 yard endurance swim in 39 minutes.
At lunch, back at Lake Norman YMCA, under the direction of Coach Andrew and Coach Fred, I completed a total of 1900 yards.
- 200 choice warm up (I did free style)
- 300 choice kick (I did flutter)
- 400 free
- 300 pull
- 200 Fingertip Drill
- 200 IM (means 50 of each of the four strokes)
- 4×50 free sprint
- 100 cool down
For the Fingertip Drill, the coaches had to explain that one to me as it was the first time I ever attempted it. I found it interested that it hardly used any energy as I barely had to come up for more air.
In preparation for the Indoor Triathlon in July, I’ve been training on an indoor rowing machine. To keep me motivated, I use a HIIT workout on my iPhone 5 which is attached to my forearm. In fifteen minutes, I was able to finish about 2500 yards. I decided to increase independence by snapping a photo of the instrument panel and reading it later.
I train in the Community Garden at Sally’s YMCA. See the below video for an idea of the course. A full lap is equal to 0.6 miles.
Today’s workout consisted of walking three miles nonstop. After that, I went one lap plus one street lamp distance run/remainder of second lap walk, times three for a total of 3.3 miles.
After that, I walked the last lap while taping the above video. For a total of 7.2 miles today!
