Weekend Training

Working out on weekends is new to me. At least, I haven't done it since Alaska, when I had a lot of time and very long summer days.

According to the training schedule, Mondays and Fridays are my off days, so today was 20 minutes on the bike and 20 minutes jogging. It's easy enough now that I'll be upping my jogging speed, which is cool. It's fun to be stronger than you thought you were.

Tomorrow is swimming. Let's get in the full 10 minutes this time, OK? For serious. I'll also be bringing my ear plugs (the ones I use for when I go shooting, funny enough). I've always had trouble with my ears, and just one swimming session was enough to remind me of them. I spent two days shaking water out of my head.

So. Onward.

Even with earplugs you can get water in your ears - try a couple of drops of rubbing alcohol in each ear after swimming to dry them out. Keeps me from recurring ear infections. :)

Thanks for the tip! This seems to be my biggest obstacle with the swimming thing.
