Got up at 0200 this morning thanks to MJ coming into bed and kicking me awake repeatedly. She normally sleeps great until around 0600 then she tries to come in. I thought it was 0600 or around there so I was wide awake. When I got out of bed to get dressed and ready to travel to the gym, I realized it was 0200! GREAT!!!
Stayed up anyway and when it was time I hit the gym
4 x 1000 with :30 RI or a min depending on chats with other people in lane.
When I finished my swim, I felt FANTASTIC. I really had a hunger to go 20 more laps to get to 5k but I had to get out to help wife clean up before she leaves for the day. So this past week, I've thought about swimming when it wasn't a swim day and when I am swimming, I'm doing better than expected, and today I was eager to do more and a bit bummed that I had to get out. All these are VERY good signs for the upcoming year. I hope these feelings only grow.
4000 today - as of today I'm 1.25% accomplished on my goal to get 500 miles this year. Oh yeah!
