Nobody cares if you're not a good dancer. Just get up and dance. The same holds true for racing. Whether first or last, we all cross that same finish line. Just get out there and run.

Jumping In

I totally looked bad ass like that in the water today.... yeah right! So, I got in the water today with Amy there to guide me through the workout and for company. Let me tell you, I had to let go of my ego and such when I got in the water because I am sure that I looked like a massive dork. I did some jogging in the water with some interval work with the water dumbbells. There was nothing cool or bad ass looking about the workout. When I was doing sprints in the water, I swear there was a point where I felt like I wasn't moving at all. Some of the sprints were with the water dumbbells and I actually liked that better then doing it without the dumbbells. Even though, I felt and looked like a dork, it was a great way to get in some active recovery. I am going to be incorporating this into my week's routine, especially on days after crazy gym days like yesterday. The other positive aspect of this workout is that it didn't hurt my knees, that was welcomed relief.

I don't know how you did it, girl! I remember playing in the pool at the YMCA when I was a kid and we'd try to race each other around or run .... it is so dang hard to move. I bet your knees are singing a happy song today!
