LOL!! OK -- only by a pull buoy!!! hee-hee! Today my swim workout called for warm up, drills, then 4 x 500 with 45 seconds rest. I decided to use a pull buoy so I could prevent my ankle from kicking. After a few flip turns, I realized I shouldn't do those either as hitting the water started to hurt it a bit -- so it was a sort of weird workout!! LOL! The pull buoys at the Sparwood pool are so rough it's like toddlers have gnawed on them. My thighs actually chafed -- In the showers, I looked down and thought -- oh wonderful. :) :) LOL!!!
But -- my ankle is getting better by the day and I can't wait to start running again. Instead of my long run yesterday, I decided to bike 3:20 on the Ironman Canada course. I had a great ride and watched Matrix Reloaded 1.5 times -- YES!!! The frigging DVD worked for me yesterday -- I couldn't believe it. The whole earth hour thing gave me an idea. I decided to unplug all unnecessary appliances for a month and see if it translates into any actual savings on my power bill. I don't have very many things plugged in, but enough to drive Mike crazy -- He was asking, "Did you unplug such-and-such?" "Yes, hun." Anyways, I am thinking that because I unplugged the DVD, something changed inside it and it decided to work. :) :)
I did core work later on then an easy 75 min. bike.
