Workouts, November 5-11

I had a terrible tracking week. I wasn't very consistent with tracking food or exercise.

I was feeling good Friday and Saturday with my new clothes, but I let today's swim workout get me down. I was sharing a lane with someone much faster than me.  I like her a lot, she's really nice, but when she told me "not to worry about keeping up," I tried to push myself harder to catch up with her, and I never did, even skipping my breaks.

I know that it's silly to feel like I have to compete in a training workout. But I'm already the biggest woman there, and I don't like to feel slow too.  I really wish I was fitter and faster.

If I want to get better, I have to put in the time. I need to get a second swim workout in my schedule, at the minimum. The woman I swam with today swims 3 days a week, and I only swim on Sundays. Instead of letting this bad workout get me down, I should let it motivate me to train smarter.

Here are my workouts for the week:

Monday: Yoga class
Tuesday: No workout
Wednesday: 40-minute Spin class
Thursday: 50-minute Spin class
Friday: Shopping (not really a workout), 20-minute walk
Saturday: Pilates Circuit, 35-minute walk
Sunday: 20-minute walk, 1-hour swim
