I've been a little off my normal eating and workout routine here and there lately, so its time to crack down. Especially since vacation is only about a month away and bathing suit season is even closer! I had a more limited time to workout today than i would have liked, but I decided to just make the best of it. After running the last two days I figured it was time to take a break so I did a swim. I went by distances, not time this go around. Wasn't feeling focused enough to do the time keeping thing. Here's the workout:
Swim Workout #2
3 x 100 Freestyle
2 x 100 Freestyle drill: fists
3 x 100 Race Pace Freestyle (not a sprint, but faster than usual)
2 x 100 Freestyle Drill (alternate right arm only and left arm only)
2 x 100 Backstroke
6 x 50 Sprint up, Easy back
2 x 100 Kickboard
2 x 100 Pull
2 x 100 Freestyle w/ Fins
1 x 100 Easy freestyle
Total Meters: 2200
Total Time: 50 minutes (for me)
This kicked by butt. I really need to get in the pool more. That, and I need to strength train. I keep saying it but in the pool today I felt it a lot! Looks like tomorrow starts the strength training mission. For real this time.
For now, I am off for drinks and such with friends. I have been really into whiskey in the last few months. Yes, I drink like a man. Tonight, I gave into that craving and attempted a nice little cocktail... I used whiskey, agave nectar, lime, and seltzer. I really wanted to use lemon and either mint or ginger. But you work with what you have...
|The ingredients: yes, that is a jumbo bottle of Johnnie Walker Black.|
The best part: its my mom's. Like mother, like daughter I guess.
|Can you believe we don;'t have a shaker??? |
A mason jar worked perfectly and doubled as a glass.
Will use this again!
|Served right in the shaker, with seltzer added after|
a good shake of the ice, whiskey, lime, and agave.
For dinner with the cocktail I had Pacific Food Thai Sweet Potato soup, served in my new Cali Bowls. I was hoping this would be similar to an amazing Thai-style soup with sweet potatoes I had in the Bahamas. Not even close :( Not recommended!
Now I have to shower super fast and look for something else to eat so that this whiskey doesn't get to me before I even go out...
