3 Things Thursday

1.  I made PaleOMG’s Italian Sausage and Carmelized Onion frittata for breakfast this morning.  It was super good and extremely easy.  I served a slice with mixed berries.  Head on over to her blog for pretty pictures and the recipe 🙂

2. I did this swim workout from FitSugar for my exercise today.  The only changes I made were adding a 50 yard warm-up and cool down.  I also changed the rest between exercises: I rested for one minute between sets of 100s, 30 seconds between sets of 50, and 15 seconds between sets of 25.  The workout doesn’t specify stroke, but I alternated between freestyle and breast stroke for the 100s and 50s, and then did one of each stroke for the 25s.

For the past month or so I have been swimming about once a week.  I used to swim competitively from ages 8-15 and then took a longgggg break.  Now I like to add it into my workout routine for a full-body workout and to switch up my cardio.  It’s always incredibly challenging for me and can sometimes be frustrating to feel like a beginner again, but at the end of a pool workout I feel accomplished, so it’s worth it.

Side note, if anyone is looking for a good shampoo for after swimming, I’ve been using this one from ion.  It leaves my hair feeling clean but not super dry.

3.  My gym is holding a contest!!!! When you go for 15 days you win a one week guest pass.  When you go for 30 days you get a t-shirt.  And if you go for 45 days you get a massage and a free one hour training session.  The contest is running from May 5- June 30.  It has really been motivating me to get to the gym most days, which is awesome because I know that consistency is key for results.

The only problem is that my knee has been bugging me a little bit and I think it’s from over-use, specifically from the treadmill.  I’ve taken 4 days off from running so hopefully the pain doesn’t come back!

Hope you guys had a great Thursday and happy almost Friday 🙂

    1. Oh I’ve used that shampoo from ion before….its good. Swimmers shampoo is meant to coat your hair rather than cleanse it.
