Swimmer, I Am Not

I got up this morning at 4:15. I know, I'm crazy. But seriously, I had to work today. Plus we have a birthday party to go to, and well life..

So I went to the gym (24 Hour Fitness) to be exact. I decided that I was going to swim some laps. I decided to change up my routine a little. My friend, Lindsay, is training for triathalons, and swimming is working for her. That damn bitch, lost 5 pounds one week. So I thought I would try it.

This is not the first time that I swam lately. I went to our association pool a couple of times last week. So anyway, I put on my swim suit, cap, and googles.. I then hoped into the pool. Ugh, it was not warm like my association pools. At least it was a salt pool though. Love those salt pools much better than chlorine.

So, I did 20 laps. I swear I was dying. I keep swallowing water and gagging. Plus, I got a really bad headache from it too. I finally had enough and got out of the pool. I then realized that, oh my god, they had a sauna there. I usually use the sauna when I got get massages. I jumped on in. I sat there and sweat for about 10 minutes.

I don't know if I can do this "swimming thing". I told Lindsay this morning that it wasn't working for me. She told me that I probably wasn't breathing right when I did my laps. She said that there's alot more to swimming than just doing laps. I can't keep doing this if I get a migraine every time.

It's 10am now and I still don't feel right. I've eaten breakfast and I have drank a ton of water. I might have to stick with my running and maybe biking every once in a while.

I might even try one of those spinning classes. Lindsay highly recommends those too.


  1. I totally give you an A for effort!! WTG on doing it!!!

  2. Man, that Lindsay character sounds like a huge bitch. hahahahahaha
