A week breakdown

This week has been so busy. Let me just break down the average day. Or the 2 average days… I guess. This week I started swimming with my school's swim team in their early morning practices. This for me includes waking up at 5:00am, getting all my stuff together, eating breakfast and biking the 2 miles uphill in the dark to my school. We workout for an hour, doing light core work, and some lap swimming.  What I feel like when I swim
After I get ready for school, I sit 5 long periods before I get to my favorite class, strength and fitness! We work out for about 45 minutes and then I only have to survive one more class before Cross Country!! This week, because we had two races, our workouts have been fairly easy. Then I race home, rush through my homework and dinner, and then run up to my lifeguarding job. As soon as I get home I go to bed. 
My other routine day involves light weight room workout 6th period and then right after school, a cross country meet.  We had 2 this week, Battle Cr…

Strength n' School

I found this funny because of two things. Its a snowman (I'm a skier) and it has abs (and I'm talking about strength here). Once school starts (tomorrow ;( no!!!!!!!!) my weekly strength workouts will go up from 3-4 to 5-10. During the first semester I am taking a strength and fitness class and I am joining the girl's swim team's pre-school workouts in the fall. Plus adding in some cross country core and some extra 1/2 hours in the weight room (from CC also) I can predict that I will be waking up (super early for swimming) with some sore muscles. Of course I'm not doing the same routine everytime. Here is a peek at what I do for general strength!

General Strength
This is just as the name says, General Strength. Here goes my normal pull-ups, push-ups, bench press, crunches. Some stuff I'm adding onto it is energy prevention for running and skiing focusing on my hips and hip flexors. Just some throwback photos from earlier this summer.
