I’m in Rod!
Our gym opened today; first lifting session in 3+ months; even though I dropped weight and a few reps, still feeling it. Went to lift shortly after my swim.
Pool is cutting back on the time you can have in the water to :45 minutes; I’ve gotta find a way to get in an additional 300 yards in that 45 minutes to get my 2000 yard goal.....uh, maybe swim faster?????
How are you?
My gym reopened last week and had 4 sessions. 5 sessions including a swim
) planned this week. It felt really good to be back at the gym and catching up with others. I'm working on losing weight and strengthening my body. After a few discussions with one of the trainers at the gym I'm aiming to lose 2lbs a week. It doesn't seem like much but the idea is to lose a small amount each week and keep it off. I'm on a high protein / low carb diet and my body fat is reducing at a good rate.
My mental health has improved too as I was getting "cabin fever" while social distancing / isolating.
I'm impressed with your 2000 yard goal. You've inspired me to set some swimming goals for myself. It's always been about "surviving the swim" but I intend to aim higher than that now.
Look forward to your first update.
