Cold Weather is NO Fun

This past week was not a good week for training. It was icy and snowy for most of the week. Sunday most of the ice had melted so I decided I'd go for a little run. Well it was still pretty cold and I didn't do too good. I went about .75 miles and I couldn't breathe. I walked the rest of the 1.25 miles and was not happy with my performance.

Monday I went in to do my speed work. I did .15 mile at 4.0, 1 mile at 6.1, .50 at 4.5, .75 at 7.0 and .10 at 3.5. Then I went to do some lightweight squats and other leg exercises.

Yesterday I went to sports authority and bought a swimming cap and some swim shorts (A fat man should never be seen in these, unfortunately I need them). I went to the gym to swim and I forgot my swim cap in my car so I had to swim without that. The shorts helped out a lot and I was there for about 45 minutes. I didn't keep track of how many laps I swam because I was just trying to work on my technique. I am not struggling with my breathing anymore and now I just have two focus on my posture.
