I don't know exactly what it was that kicked my booty back into gear, but I've been extremely motivated lately when it comes to working out. For the last two and a half weeks I've swam at least three days each week. Of the 3-4 days that I haven't swam I've walked at least 2 of them. That leaves only 1-2 days each week where I haven't done cardio and on these days I have at least done crunches or weight lifting. I'm really hoping that the motivation sticks around for awhile and I don't get burned out. I think part of it is that I have some goals set and I'm trying really hard to reach them.

Tonight I achieved one of them - I swam 3200 yards in less than an hour! I'm so impressed with myself I don't even know what to do. For those of you who don't know what that is the equivalent to, let me tell you. 3200 yards is 64 laps in the pool or 128 lengths. It is a little over 1.75 miles and I can't believe I did it! :)

My next goal is to do 2 miles, but I think it's going to take me a few more weeks/months to get to that point. My goal is to achieve it before the end of the summer. Think I can do it?
