Yeah… that Google search and all its derivatives didn’t prove to be very successful. It was like those times when I frantically search for the lowest price on a product, insisting in my head that it MUST be hidden SOMEwhere!
… to no avail!
Next best thing….
Attach a noodle to each of my legs.
Yup… That’s what I would do.
Can you believe it?!?
That is what I’d do!!!!!
But, I really didn’t.
I settled for just making LOVE to my beautiful pull buoy!
During my two most recent workouts (after a great lesson with Ms Andrea Rudser-Rusin and when I believed to have received permission), I used the pull buoy to keep what mobsters would consider an easy night’s work (aka my legs made of concrete) afloat.
I shoved that thing between my legs and used it! I used it and it built my confidence! Oh yeah, it did!
At my lesson, I was told not to kick… But, I was still having an issue with my legs falling, no matter how how much I thought chest down… shoulder down… relax… blah de blah de dahh!
So, I kick with that thing between my legs. Yes m’am, I am kickin’ from dem hips… Not dah knees! Promise!
So, on Saturday…what’s also known as my long training day… I did 50s pretty easily… Then, I surprised myself with a few 100s.
Tonight, I surprised myself and did some 150s and I think a couple 200s… AWESOME!
But, is that cheating??? Won’t I have even MORE help from a whole wetsuit on race day???
