  5. Not a good one today

    by , April 13th, 2015 at 07:24 AM (Mixing it up this year)
    I think the fast metabolism program I am on has definitily helped with my insomnia, blood sugar and weight, but it is killiing my swimming. I only have a few more weeks of this then hopefully I can regain some of my strength.

    1 hour swim only went 3750, started out too slow. Might need to do this on a Tuesday or Wednesday rather than after my day off. I am thankful for my Garmin watch doing all the counting for me.
