The fact that i get zero sympathy from friends and family only heightens the #mansickness and pushes me to realms of whiny otherwise thought unachievable. Puppies looking to go outside and play have nothing on the level of whiny i can achieve. Little children waiting in line at the grocery store and wanting a kinder suprise would stand in blank faced awe at the whininess tidal wave that i can crash down on all those around me with tsunami like devastation. #mansick
Okay that might be a bit of a stretch, but you get the picture, pretty, pretty whinny.
I have been able to still get 3 swimming sessions in this week and am pretty pumped with the results thus far.
Monday: ( beginning of #mansick) 3x750m swims
Tuesday: ( worsening #mansick) 1x750m swim 1x1500m swim
Wednesday: off ( full blown #mansick)
Thursday: (still #mansick but Nyquil to the rescue) 1x750m swim 1x1500m swim + ( possible run or bike tonight)
For those that have been following along this is the first week that i have tried doing the Olympic swim distance of 1500m instead of my usual 3x750m Sprint distance swims.
I have to say, even despite the devastating #mansickness that has crept over me, I am really happy with the distances and times I have put in this week.
All of my 750m distances were right around the 17 minute mark, a little above or a little below.
The 1500m distance I was really pumped about. Secretly i have been thinking about the Olympic distance triathlon so this was a first test to see if i could do the swim part in relative time to the Sprint time. Both 1500m distance swims came in between 34-36 minutes, so fairly consistent with my 750m times.
I dont know if i would be biting off more then i could chew with the Olympic distances but it will be in the back of my mind over the next couple of months as I continue training.
Just a little update for the week.
