Today was a full team practice. 50 people in one pool. Can you say wave pool? We took it back too before we got this expensive training program with different practice groups and all did the same workout. I swam with people I had never swam with the entire season. I hope I never have to swim with them again. If you swim with me-you better believe I will call you out if you skip yards or if you draft off me.
4X175 Free Interval
6X125 Free Interval
8X75 Free Interval
20X25 Kick Interval (These were tough-on 30 seconds and I’m an awful kicker.)
15X50 (Mid-pool 50s)
Then after yesterdays experience with oatmeal pancakes, I decided to make myself some pumpkin oatmeal pancakes. These were actually really yummy. If I had more time-I would make them tomorrow for breakfast too. Tomorrow is a travel day though and I don’t have time…do not fear though…Aram, my travel buddy Alicia and I are stopping at a diner somewhere near the airport.
½ cup flour
¼ cup egg
¼ cup rolled oats
½ cup canned pumpkin
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp pumpkin spice and cinnamon
1 scoop protein powder
Other sweeteners to taste
Mix all ingredients. Don’t cook the oatmeal. Just add the oats along with the rest and pour on the griddle. I also added about ½ cup water but it depends how you like your pancakes.
Today was filled with lots of eating (but not binge eating) and I’m at a much higher calorie intake than normal, but I did swim a double today so I can’t really blame my body. It just seems like I cannot get enough carbs.
Practice number two:
8X250 Free Interval
7X100 Free Interval
Then I went to the dining hall, which wasn’t really in my best interest but the entire team went so I couldn’t really say no. Confession: I had a cookie and some ice-cream but decided that I didn’t want the ice-cream after all and got rid of it. It wasn’t my healthiest eating day, but I’m glad I didn’t overeat on things at the dining hall.
I’m going to be doing a ton of food blogs at home because there are so many great foods I lack at college .
How was your lovely day today?
