So I suppose that if I'm going to be keeping a blog I should try to post in it on a semi-regular basis.

For having relatively nothing to do, and fairly low stress this year (at least compared to last year), I am so freaking busy! I feel like I have so much to do (maybe it's the 6 classes) but overall, my stress level is so much lower than this time last year, when I was interviewing at law firms. There's something just so draining about having to be 'on' all the time during interview season; I think it's tough not to be exhausted all the time.

Monday was a rest day. Tuesday was another long slow swim, and like the speedwork last Friday, I took a couple seconds off of each swim. It's great to see such immediate results, but it's too bad that these drops in time won't keep up at the same rate.

Because I'm so happy that I can finally do the elliptical, I did that on Wednesday. I had planned to go for 45 minutes, but after about 25 I felt a twinge in my foot and decided to cut it short. I like continuing to recover more than I liked staying on the elliptical for another 20 minutes and potentially doing any more damage or impeding the healing process at all.

Today was a short swim, because of course I overslept (it's a Thursday, after all). I managed to get in 11 x 50 (15 sec rest) (meant to do 10 but miscounted) and 12 x 25 (10 sec rest). My times for the 50s ranged from 48 to 52 (50, 50, 50, 48, 49, 52, 49, 50, 49, 49, 50), and the 25s were (25, 24, 24, 24, 24, 24, 25, 24, 24, 25, 25, 25). I might not be fast, but at least I'm consistent!

Tomorrow is acupuncture again. Last week after I did it I was able to do the elliptical. Hopefully there will be good results this time as well!

Ah, sleeping in on Thursdays...

So those are some remarkably consistent times for the 50's and 25's. And way to keep getting faster, too!

Have fun with the acupuncture, hopefully it will help.
