Seems easy right? Breathe in...blow bubbles out. Something we learned to do with our rubber ducky friend at the age of TWO! Something we were then again taught in swimming lessons at age FIVE! Then why does it seem difficult at age TWENTY FOUR? Ive been a swimmer my whole life, but never quite gripped the concept of breathing out while your face is underwater so when you turn you only have to suck in. WHenever I do it...I feel panicked and starved for Oxygen. Almost like holding my breath keeps me satisfied knowing I have air. I dunno what the deal is...but blowing bubbles has become increasingly more difficult as my calendar years increase.
On the flip side...I swam THREE times this week. Crazy huh? And I figured out a way to avoid running while power walking................the answer? Not power walking at all. Then theres no temptation to run. I pretty much eliminated the sport that requires my two feet to carry me. I have stuck to the two wheels...or two arms in the water. Therefore there is no temptation to pick my feet up off the ground while walking. Problemo solvedo! Its worked for 5 days. However I want to run soon..I'm thinkin I might do the treadmill. Since its flat...maybe it wont aggrevate the IT band as much (I've dubbed IT to stand for Idiotic Torture Band)..haha. Unfortunately the pool is closed next week for repairs. Thats part of why I got so much swimming in this week. Also finals starts next week..as you remember we have two weeks of finals. WHOOO HOOOOOo = not much training..
Hope everyone has a great weekend:)
