Glory Days

The best thing about taking Monday off from work is that you feel like you completely skip Tuesday.  When I woke up this morning, realized it was Wednesday, and that for once it wasn’t raining, I was instantly in a better mood.  I also had an email on my phone informing me that any swim order over $60 qualified for free shipping at Victoria’s Secret.  I’d had my eye on one particular suit for a while, so this morning I finally ordered it.

And well, because that only totaled $40, I also ordered this fun looking cover-up.

Nothing like getting in some shopping before 10 am on a Wednesday.  I’ve also now hit my quota for swim suits/cover-ups for the season.  One is my limit, until I go to Jamaica in the winter that is :).  Actually I’ll probably just “borrow” what my sister bought for her spring break two months ago.

Anyway, enough of that.  Yesterday I did this upper body workout, and the speed cardio that the work out plan called for.  2x 400 m and 1x 200m.  I threw in a mile warm-up and cool-down to make it an even 3 miles for the day.  The speed work got me thinking, and I kind of want to find out just how fast I can still run 200 m.  I’ve mentioned before, but I actually used to be a pretty good athlete back in high school, especially when it came to track and field.  While I highly doubt that I could still run at 27 second 200 or a 60 second 400, it would be interesting to see what I can do.  Anyone want to race?

Sometimes I miss track meets, and competitive events I was actually good at.  When I wasn’t nervous to run, or jump (mostly jump), because I was the one to beat.  Let’s be serious, long distance races are not my forte and I will never be part of a competitive field when it comes to them.  But for some reason, I was really good at flinging my  body up and over a bar, and launching myself into sand pit.


Granted, the 20 plus pounds I’ve put on since then might hinder my abilities now, but that’s neither here nor there.  It would still be fun to try again.  Oh, I also miss my blue and gold spikes, Go Pandas!

  1. That bathing suit is so cute! I love it.

    I used to do high jump too – it was so much fun!

  2. Love the suit and cover up! I can’t pull off those kinds of tops at all.

    My stint in track ended as quickly as it started, but I played soccer in high school and miss it a lot.

  3. Dude, I was JUST at an adult track meet last night where grownups were running the 400. If you want to, you should absolutely train and see what you can do! They’re fun! And you’re over in a minute!

  4. Pretty suit! I LOVED doing the long jump in High School. Actually, I love any kind of jumping. Keeps me young- LOL!

  5. That cover-up is one I looked at it! However, I went against my better judgement and ordered a different one that turned out awful and now I’m out the cost of shipping and handling because VS sucks about it… fail on my part… ugh!

  6. Cute bathing suit! I didn’t buy a new one last year- I should probably do that this year, huh? 🙂

  7. I love that suit. You’re going to look bangin!

    I can’t believe you used to do the jump or whatever it’s called. It looks tough!

  8. I like that bathing suit. I need a new one too.

    That’s pretty badass that you did the high jump!

  9. I high jumped in high school too! I actually still hold hold my school record (12 years later…good lord 30 is old!!) I jumped 5’6″ and I was SO happy to have cleared my height!

  10. That bikini will look good at my pool. Good thing I’m coming soon.
    That’s awesome. I was not athletic in high school. Not one bit.

  11. I buy a new bathing suit every year, it’s a problem. We do have a pontoon boat though which we will hopefully be taking on many adventures this year.
    And I played basketball in high school and soccer, but bball was my jam. I am almost 5’9 though so you know they were recruiting me from age 7.
