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).
