I am fierce...


I am fierce....

It's my new motto. I've been hitting the gym, and better yet the pool every day for almost a week. Here's the best part I'm really enjoying it.... Okay maybe not so much the 30-45 minutes spent on the treadmill or elliptical trainer, but certainly the hour or so swimming.

I was a competitive swimmer most my life and even swam competitively in college. However, while in college I realized how burnt out I was. For years I wouldn't even enter a pool for leisure. Just the smell of chlorine would throw me back into the decade + of my life spent swimming laps.

After a several year hiatus I have started to swim and have been looking forward to it each and every day. It is my favorite part of my day and such a nice treat after working so hard on the treadmill or the elliptical. It's nice to jump in the pool and feel the strength in my arms and shoulders again. I have a goal to lose weight, and am hoping the combo of running and swimming will get me there. 

At the start of every season for most college and high school sports there's a time of two-a-days or a Hell Week, where you practice two to three times a day to build up strength and endurance quickly enabling you to start with the full workout earlier in the season. I am in my own personal Hell Week. 4-5 miles running, and then 1.5-2 miles swimming. I feel fierce and am proud of myself for being able to do it, however I also feel very worn out. But today as with every other day this week, I am looking forward to my workout! I'm watching the clock tick by until I can head to the gym, get my running out of the way and jump into the pool!

I am fierce! 

For those of you entered in my gardening in Texas Giveaway this is post number 50! So my next post will announce the giveaway winners! Hurray!

Nice work girlie!!! I'm quite impressed that you are working out that long and that hard. I need to get back into the pool. I loved it when I was training for my first triathalon (which you should totally do!!)

How are things with you and the boy? I know you had some rocky moments a while ago, and I hope they are getting better!!

You are fierce Miss Complete, absolutely you are, especially with the double-duty workouts (running & swimming) most days! You are not only fierce, you are amazing.

Good for you!

I agree swimming feels so good after a hard cardio workout. I also find it so relaxing. I get some of by thinking done in the pool actually.

Hey, just checking in. You haven't blogged in awhile, and I wanted to make sure you were okay! I hope your relationship is great and that you are keeping up with the gardening and the swimming!!
