Three Things Thursday

It’s back!  Three Things Thursday.  It’s been MIA in the recent past, but it’s making a comeback!

Without further ado –

1.  You could say I have a peanut butter problem.  I have been eating copious amounts of this goodness for the last couple months.  I try to portion control while at work – but I seem to be hoarding it because I love it so much.  I eat it with sliced apples, bananas, and with a spoon right out of the container.  My friend, Meghan, suggested I bring the entire container to work and just leave it instead of trying to ration my problem.  But, quite seriously, I think if left to my own jar … well, I would open it several times throughout the day and the sucker would be consumed in no time.  Better stick to portion control, however silly this looks ….

2.  Clearly, I need to stretch more.  This is my attempt at a hamstring stretch.  As you can see — I’m not so bendy.

3.  Last night marked my longest swim to date!! 3000 yards!! OR –  1.7 miles!  Took me a little over an hour, but I did it and am so happy I did — because, this marks my furthest swim since Ironman Canada 2011.  Wanna read about my Ironman Canada 2011 experience?  CLICK HERE.

For the record, the pool I swim in is SHORT!  I have to touch 6 times in order to make 100 yards, or 3 down and backs.  So people, guess what?  I did 180 touches last night.  PHEW! (oh – and I didn’t use the paddles, but I did use the pull buoy the second half of the set per coaches instructions).

  1. I love peanut butter too! I actually just discovered the most delicious organic peanut butter. The brand is called woodstock. It only consists of sea salt and peanuts. It is 9 grams of protein per serving and is free of GMOs. I’ll post a pic on my blog.

  2. Really enjoy following your swimming exploits. 180 touches? It is time, Grasshopper. Embrace the flip turn! I’m still working on mine but if I can learn it at …. an advancing age, you should have no (major) problem. It will change your life ;o)

  3. I share in your PB predicament. AND your stretchy predicament! I guess there are worse things that could happen, right?! I mean, there could be a Trader Joe’s chocolate caramel predicament…
