Alot of excitement in Chicagoland this week with the 30th running of the Chicago. I want to shout out to my friend DeeDee who will be running this for her 3rd year. She has really put her heart and soul into her training and I wish her the best. Also a good luck to Juls who is coming in from California. She has had a very tough year and deserves an awesome day. The weather will be untypical for Chicago -forecast is for 85 and sunny.

SWIM LESSON #5


Tuesday night's swim class was not as good. I tried tonight to go without nose clips. I can't get the breathing down yet. I get so caught up in worrying about the breath that my form stinks. I might concentrate on my form now and work on the breathing later. Next week is the last week for Ripples. I hope I can still graduate.



TEAM WEIGHT LOSS # 1B
Tonight we were supposed to meet with the nutritionist. On week 1,6, and 12- the team weighs in and gets measurements done. The nutritionist was off sick so they added on a free week for us and there will acutallu be 13 weeks to the program. We were on the treadmill again for 60 min. Today was incline intervals between 2 -4-6 . We added 5 lb weights to work our arms also at different time. I was drenched with sweat when I was done. I thought about swimming but my legs were just too tired. When I left the gym, I felt like I am really heading the right direction.

Good Luck -DeeDee and Juls!!!!!!!!!
Waddling to lose weight..........

Great job on your new workouts. And as for the breathing thing with swimming, it eventually comes. You might try taking some deep relaxing breaths before you start, and stop and rest whenever you find yourself out of breath, and then continue. You might also try holding your breath for longer periods, to build up your lung capacity, and to make it seem easier for regular breathing. Another thing with swimming is when you use your arms and your legs, you are going to be more out of breath than when just using the arms. Your heart needs to supply blood and oxygen to opposing muscles, so the lungs go into overdrive. Try controlling your kick or use a pull buoy until you get under control.

Hey, thanks for the shout out. May all of the runners have strength and may it stay relatively cool until I've crossed the finish.
