It might be late Monday night, but it’s still Monday, and I’m still going to link up with the Fitness Cheerleader for Motivate Me Monday. Better late than never right!
I was sick with a terrible sinus infection all last week, complete with fever, so the only workout I managed was my Monday night swim. That’s it! And I probably shouldn’t have either!
Faster, Longer, Stronger
Well, today, I’m feeling myself again! I just came back from my Monday night swim and I’m feeling fantastic. If you read my first post about swimming, you know I struggled at first. A few weeks ago, I had another update on my improvements. Fast forward a few more weeks, we did another 200 m timed assessment. I’m thrilled to say that since the beginning I’ve shaved 2 whole minutes off of my time. At my first assessment, it took me 7:49 to swim 200 meters. Now, at week 10, it only took me 5:49. I’m definitely getting faster, swimming longer and getting to be a stronger swimmer!
I want to drop my time to under 5 minutes. I’ll probably have to take another session of endurance classes to achieve that, but I think it can be done!
I want to know what you, my readers, think about Run Mommy Run. Please jump over to my survey, to give me some feedback. This will help me bring you better content!
Motivate Me Monday
As usual, I’m linking up with The Fitness Cheerleader and Running Rachel for #MotivateMe Monday because we all need some motivation to keep going. Ever since I set my triathlon goals and now I’m wondering if I’m ready for a 1/2 marathon in 2016 as well, I’m feeling pretty pumped to workout.Link up with @fitcheerldr & @RunningRachel for #MotivateMe Monday if you need some motivation!

Thursday: Weights/total body workout
Saturday or Sunday: 8/9 km run (I’m trying to increase my mileage to 10 km and beyond!)
How about you? How is your week shaping out? Have you set any goals this week?
