Awesome Swim Workout

Today I hit the pool once again!  Lately it is the best way to get my cardio in without to many interruptions!  The boys start school August 19th.  I am looking forward to structure again, that seems to lack in the summer time.

Today’s Swim Work kicked my butt!  I plowed through the main set but started to drag a little during the ladder.  I guess the monkey bread I ate before we headed out was not the best choice.  I definitely had a lapse in nutritional judgment.  Usually I stick with PB & Honey before any cardio session but the monkey bread looked so good!  Oh well lesson learned.
