Thought my ankle might still be a little sketch so I did an hour of aquajogging. I'm torn about how to log this time...so I'll just call it 6ish miles...if that's bad...then I dunno, this is my blog and I'll probably just do what I want. If you're worried about your spot on the mileage board then feel free to join me at the pool I guess.
So I woke up before 7 for the first time in forever, and felt like trash. I texted someone about that and they were so concerned about my self esteem that they kept saying that I'm not trash and I was thinking "I know that, I'm great, I just physically feel like I want to cease living and I don't think you understand that" but I thought about it and was like "dang this person obviously cares about me if they don't want me to think I'm trash enough to say I'm not twice, even though I just mean I could go for a few more hours of sleep". And I was kinda touched by that. So that's how I felt something besides exhaustion and a desire for sleep this morning.
So halfway through this I had to pee so I got out of the pool and I could not stand up, I was so physically spent that I could not get up. It was so crazy. My back muscles and neck muscles were super tight and tired and my arms and legs were burning. So that was a crazy feeling. That convinced me of the efficacy of aquajogging. That being said, I'm still not that good at it. I catch myself treading water with a more efficient arm or leg movement every couple minutes, and I don't think I'm keeping my tempo up as well as I am supposed to. As I get better I will log these miles at 8min = 1mile, but for now it's not as effective as running so it'll be 10min = 1mile. Also there was some slight ankle discomfort during this that would have turned into pain if I had been pounding the pavement, so I made a good call I think.
Did a little bit of swimming. It hurt nice. It was fun.
