I have definitely not had this much consistent exposure to chlorine in well over 6 months! I'm all itchy and I'm even taking the time to soap up real good afterwards. I'll adapt. This morning's swim was short and sweet:
600 - 3 x 200 breast/back/free
1000 kick with fins
1000 - 10 x 100's pull easy on 1:30
1000 - 3 x 3 x 100's (breast, back free) + 2 laps of over/unders
3600 yards total in 1:15
This morning I weighed myself and I've lost 15 pounds in 20 days. And based on the trainer's caliper measurements, and the calculations he's made, it's been all fat, and I've gained muscle. Good balanced diet, avoiding high GI stuff, and including lots of cardio and strength training. I could be in maintenance mode in about a month at this rate. Feeling good.
