WETSUIT DAY


Tomorrow is wetsuit day at Master's swim. There is a part of me very anxious to put it on and see how it feels in the water. The other part is so nervous for the first time to wear it in front of other people. It will be interesting for sure. I will need to be up at 3am to have plenty of time to get it on.

Tonight I ran 3 miles and my legs are really tired. I am running my first race this weekend. It is my once a year obligatory 5k. I actually hate the 5K. But I run one to get a feel for where I am at in my training. Then I let it go.

Waddling and worn out.............

What a funny photo!!!!!! I can imagine the whole wet-suit thing would be a bit much.

Hey, good luck in the 5K!!! I can't stand them either but, yes, they are a good assessment of fitness!!!

I hate the 5K too...because it is a 'Just red line it' kind of race.

I practiced in my wetsuit in teh pool last year. It was interesting. But not the same as swimming outside. It was warm in the pool, which is not like lakewater...

Thanks for stopping by my blog and the nice comment :)

It takes me forever to squeeze into my wetsuit...LOL!

Hope the swim went well! Someday, I'd like to get up the courage to join a Master's swim team.

I don't care for 5K's much either...they hurt!

I'n not a 5K fan either....but you do what you gotta do! And I KNOW you'll do GREAT!

I really want to run the Chicago marathon someday. I cant wait to follow along with your journey of getting there :)
