Did the same swim workout again today. And I realized that the first time I totally didn't see the big "2 X" on the plan, so I was actually 900m short!

 

Well I did it properly this time. It took 2 hours rather than 73 minutes but I'm focusing on distance, technique and completion. Speed will come later.

 

Dead now.

 

I was inspired by my kiwi popsicles over the weekend, so I ordered a commercial silicone popsicle mold and a whole lot of fruit. The Texan threw away my crappy plastic ones after he broke them and didn't feel like cleaning them. I've done my best to mush up the fruit and layer it in interesting combinations. The only ingredient is fruit so it's a healthy alternative while I try to kick my ice cream habit. I might invest in a small blender to give them a smoother texture, and then I can make yummy banana fruitsicles. I'm excited to taste and show off these masterpieces...

Currently reading the second A Court of Thorns and Roses book by Sarah J Maas but not enjoying it all that much.

 

Did you end up finishing this?  I listened (audiobook) to the first one and loved it, but just couldn't get into the second one...it might have been cos I was listening in summer and the first few minutes is all about her being drunk on some roof in the heat and it just made me feel queezy walking to work in the sun :dejection:

(and my underwater ipod)

 

:blink: How did I not know this was a thing??  I thought you were joking in your challenge about having to listen while swimming!  Have to add this to my next 'it's shiny I want it!' to-buy list!

Yeah, I finished the whole series but I would give it a 2.5/5 at best. Not worth it.

 

As for the underwater ipod... it's awesome! But I haven't been swimming since it got cold. Now I'm surpremely lazy. Kind of fell off the wagon completely when we went on our cruise over Christmas. It's March now, practically April, and I have yet to get back on the wagon. I'm deleting my facebook this weekend, so maybe this is a good time to respawn.
