Too Neurotic to be Suitably Aquatic

Let us celebrate with the addition of chocolate to milk

Yikes! two days out of the pool, the longest I've gone in a while. I finally got in again on Sunday, before the club swim practice (I was guarding, and then I spent an hour teaching a swim lesson trying to get a 12-year-old to do just one 25 of legal breaststroke. He came very, very close by the end.) On Sunday, I did a super 1000 set with two faster guys, and I didn't quite hold on to the base :45 intervals, had to drop 3 50's to keep up. I assigned the same workout to FISH this morning so I could redeem myself:

500 warm-up
2 SUPER 1000's:

50, 50, 100 @ :45, :45, 1:30

50, 150 @ :45, 2:15
100, 100 @ 1:30, 1:30
150, 50 @ 2:15, :45
100, 50, 50 @ 1:30, :45, :45
(1st round free, 2nd round stroke - intervals on base :55)

SUPER 500 Kick, with fins:

25, 25, 50
25, 75
50, 50
75, 25
50, 25, 25


And I made it! I didn't stick to the intervals as religiously on the second round of stroke because my lane-mates were more interested in pulling freestlye, so there were a few times they caught up to me and my slow-as-hell strokes. But I think I got some good work in before Sunday's meet.

****SIDE NOTE****A friendly reminder when writing blogs - save, save often! I just lost a whole big thing about my post-workout meal because I accidentally clicked the "go advanced" button. Obviously, I am not ready for being advanced.

So here is the short version:
Upon the advice of jbs, I tried chocolate milk as a post-workout snack.
It is easier on my tummy than bars.
It doesn't give me as many adverse lactose-intolerant side effects as I feared it would.
I feel full for a long time afterward.
Via my cold-drink thermos, it's easy to port to my lifeguarding gig and on the train.
Mixed nuts & cranberries make a nice supplement to the chocolate milk.

    Yay for chocolate milk! You could also try chocolate soy-milk, but I've never seen it in single-serving cartons like Horizon.
