Crying is alright in its way while it lasts, but you have to stop sooner or later. And then you still have to decide what to do. [The Silver Chair, CD 1, Track 3, 00:51]I did a little workout this morning: 500 + 100 swim. For variety's sake, I changed the 500 a little by swimming 100 hard, 100 easy, 100 hard, 100 easy, and 100 hard. Total time was 8:14—not much different than when I swim all 500 hard! Times: 1:27, 1:44, 1:35, 1:50, 1:37. (Very similar, in fact, to Tuesday where I tried to do all 5 hard: 1:27, 1:39, 1:41, 1:39, 1:37 for 8:04.) The final 100 was a little cool down: 1:41. My timing was just right and I finished when the 8am spin class was just finishing. That meant I got to see all my cycling friends. And, Jonell is going to join me for Tuesday's swim. Hooray for friends and feet to draft off of!
My morning/afternoon project was looking through and sorting some of the pictures I brought back at Thanksgiving. This was by far my best day: I made it through 1 entire box, put them all in order, and put them in a book. I was confident enough that I wouldn't find pictures from that era in other boxes. And I couldn't throw any of these particular pictures away. They were all from between 1954 and 1970—my mom's growing-up years. There are some real gems in there!
- Wall squat (iso), low squat foot jumps
- Standing extreme hamstring (iso), Russian lunge (10 each leg each time)
- Push up (iso), front delt (rebounds, 1.5-lb dumbbells)
- Scap pull up (iso), bent over row (rebounds, 1.5-lb dumbbells, one arm at a time)
