post-PORN-ment

Sorry peeps – I have to postporn the porn.  hee. I wouldn’t want to provide you with less than spectacular shoes – that would be a disservice to you, my loyal readers and to myself.

Today, there is much work. There is again tomorrow – although I will try to go home & download pictures of shoes tonight (the architect will be out until later, so there won’t be anyone with whom I can converse….although the cats are almost there).

This morning, I went swimming again. Two weeks ago, I went with The Amibitious One and she gave me a swim workout to do (actually she gave me about 9 to choose from – three workouts in three difficulty levels). The first level (which I chose, because I haven’t swam regularly for about a year) had distance totals of 1,000 yards. Which I, though my exceptional math skills, determined was 40 laps.

Last week, I only did 30 laps – so I did not make my goal. (I could’ve done more, but there were people staring at me.) Today, I wanted to make my full 1,000 yards. And I did.

I did:

  • 8 laps of freestyle (rest after 4 laps)
  • 5 laps of kickboard (boo)
  • 10 laps of freestyle (brief rest after 5 laps)
  • 5 laps of kickboard (boo)
  • 12 laps of freestyle (rest after 10 laps, then finished the last two)

It was only later that I checked with the Ambitious One (those of you who swim more regularly may already be laughing). It turns out that 40 LENGTHS is 1,000 yards. 40 LAPS is 2,000 yards. So I accidentally doubled my workout. And today, swam more than a mile. Not continously or anything, but more. So now I’m all impressed with myself (also, today there were no staring people at the end of the pool, which definitely helped).

I’m not sure I enjoyed it, but it was much nicer.  I hate feeling crowded & rushed. Someday I’m going to have my very own private lap pool, and no one can swim in it but me. So there.

  1. Haha..yay! I enjoyed it and I enjoy swimming more when I have someone there with me, so thanks for that…maybe someday you’ll enjoy it too!

    My shoe guru question can wait since Mr. Pi started our taxes last night and we might owe this year. TOTAL CRAP since I make pennies but it is what it is. (Stupid Oregon income tax, why can’t we spread the burden and just have a sales tax too!?!)

  2. 🙁
    I got all excited for porn, because apparently I thought you were posting it even though the title said post-porn-ment… I guess I got my days confused. Or just really wanted to look at pretty pictures of shoes.
    *sigh*

  3. good for you! (don’t you just love the swim workouts?) I’m not going back in the pool until I completely kick this cold. Do some laps for me.

  4. Wow, swimming?? You go girl. Seriously, I like to swim but I don’t think I like it as exercise. I like the splashing and wading part but don’t think I want to think of it as a workout! That’s one of the reasons why I’d never get into triathlons! (Did I spell that right? *Yawn*)

  5. I am all impressed with your bad self!!!
