Swim Workout + New Shoes

Okay, now it is FINALLY starting to feel like spring. Yesterday I had the day off so I had the chance to drive up to the Freeport YMCA and jump in the pool. First time since August! (I drive to Freeport because the pool is bigger and newer than the one in Portland… and it’s really not that far.) For those of you training for triathlons here’s a good swim workout that’s easy to follow, quick, and keeps you entertained. I find that when I go to the pool with a plan I end up getting a much better workout than when I got and just swim mindlessly. Here’s what I did yesterday:


After my workout I decided to stop at the Maine Running Company for some new running shoes. For the first time in 11 years I ended up purchasing a shoe other than the Mizuno Wave Rider and the Asics Gel Nimbus. I ended up with the Saucony Triumph and I’m really excited for them! I went in looking for the Gel Nimbus but they were out of stock so I gave this shoe a try and I love it! Haven’t been running in them yet but I’m looking forward to it. AND they were 10 bucks cheaper than the Gel Nimbus. Yahoo! If you’re in need of some running shoes go check this place out. The staff is very knowledgeable and it’s so important to be fitted for a pair of running shoes to avoid injury-especially if you are new to running!
