I do get depression and it's not really that, I'm just feeling a little bit down. I don't have the joy or excitement I usually feel when I get a good workout in. But, I'm still doing the workouts and that's really good.
So let's see what's happened the past couple of days.
Monday was swimming. It was good. I did some drills, some intervals, some distance. I ended up doing 2500 m. It was good.
Tuesday was weights and running. The weights went fine, no problems there. The run was another story. I took off and planned to do about 4 miles. I started out and felt really good. I was running good and moving fast. I hit the 1 mile mark 4 minutes faster than my last run. Woo Hoo!!! I got about 1.5 miles into it and a little dog shot out of the bushes on the side of the road and got clipped by a car. The hit wasn't bad, the dog kept running with just a slight limp. So I called to the dog to try and get it out of the road. It came running over and proceeded to adopt me. I spent the next 45 minutes walking around trying to find where this little girl lived. Needless to say, she had no collar and no tags.
After 45 minutes I really had to get home and this little girl just followed me the whole way. I got home and put her in a neighbors kennel while I got ready for work. I loaded her into my truck and took her to the Humane Society. Luckily she has a microchip and they were able to contact her owners, so there was a happy ending to this story.
Unfortunately, my run was aborted and I ended up walking mostly. So tonight I will go running to make up for yesterday.
This morning was swimming and I was really working on my form. I ended up doing 2250 m and it was good. I was really working on my extension and my distance per stroke. I discovered I have a habit of cutting my stroke short. At the end of the stroke you should be pushing the water at your hips. I was cutting it short and not pushing. So I worked on that.
It's been a good week so far I just have nothing to really say. ::heavy sigh:: I guess I'll go eat my breakfast and then work. I don't feel like sitting on the computer so I guess I'll work.
