The swimming has been progressing - though it's been almost 3 weeks since I've actually swam laps, I've been progressing on the Total Immersion drills and feel very comfortable with the first couple. These eventually turn into swimming so I have resolved to exercise patience when it comes to rebuilding my swim stroke.
I've had a hard time getting on the bike lately though - it's still too dark and 'cold' in the morning. The afternoons are packed with meetings or picking up the kids...perhaps a spin class is in order?
Either way, I'm happy with my progress this week. I'm trying hard not to count hours or get pissed if I choose to sleep in a bit one day a week. Fitness is hard work and I have learned to appreciate what my body is telling me - if it's tired, I listen. Pushing over the limits only gets you sick or breaks you down.
