My day started gloriously with a protein pancake.
Recipe idea from here:
- 1/3 c. quick oats
- 1/4 c. cottage cheese
- 1 egg white
- 1t flax seed
—> blend with immersion blender and cook!
This was really yummy, I highly recommend it! The cottage cheese flavor reminded me of a cream cheese-stuffed French toast and the texture was light and fluffy.
On to the rest of my day: this week we’ve been plagued with thunderstorms, and I already missed Monday’s swim practice due to storms, so I definitely needed to hit up the pool, even if it was rainy. I’m getting wet anyway right?
My coach had a killer workout in store for us:
- 400 w/u
- 200 kick with fins
- 4×50 superman drill with fins (arms out like superman, hold 3 seconds before pulling)
- 4×50 tarzan drill with fins (swim with head above water concentrating on high elbows)
- 8 x 100: first 3 descending, next 3 easy 25m/sprint 25m, last 2 timed
- 100 c/d
It was tough, but I improved my 100m time to 1:47 min since I had last tried – sweet!
