Catching up + Swimming Workout

Hi there! How’s your week going? It’s been an interesting one over here. Vera has been battling something/reacting to her 12-month vaccines/dealing with 1-year molars – AKA it’s impossible to know what’s ailing your baby and toddler. THAT is one thing about parenting I wasn’t really expecting.

Honestly, it’s probably all three things for her.

So yeah Monday was really rough, but yesterday was better.

I did manage to get in a 3-mile run on Monday morning and a yoga strength workout yesterday morning (had to get up at 4:30 am to get it in but oh well ;). And we’ve stuck to our meal plan for the week so far, so I’m feeling pretty good about that.

One more thing before I share a swimming workout: if you liked my post yesterday about Vera’s butterfly birthday party, check out my latest contribution to Northeast Ohio Parent Magazine: Realistic Party Planning Tips for Non-Crafty Moms.


While I didn’t manage to get in a swim yet this week (I’m holding out hope for tomorrow or Friday), I wanted to share the swim workout I’ve been doing during my past few sessions. It’s easily customizable and scalable based on how much time you have/your swimming fitness level (which, BTW, is different than your regular fitness level –> #humbled).

Oh but first, a few terms. Most pools (non-Olympic ones) will take two lengths (25 meters) to equal one lap (50 meters). My pool is that way so one lap = down and back (or two lengths). Ya with me?

Doing 14 laps takes me about 30 minutes now that I’ve been swimming regularly for a couple months.

Let me know if you try it!
