Monday WOD: more running then swimming

I made it to the 6AM class today:
30 snatches (45 lbs, wish I had did 55 lbs but was feeling like 30 was too much)
rest 2 min
Run 1 mile
I did the 30 snatches in 4:02 and then the mile in 11:20! This was progress since we just a mile last week and I finished in 13:30. It helped that this run had several people and when I had about a 1/4 mile left, I heard Gary breathing heavily behind me so I kicked it up, he even said "so you're going faster cause I'm catching up", I said yes and sad to say, he did overtake me (even worse, he finished his snatches at least within a minute after me). But having someone there to chase did force me to go faster and I'm glad for that.  I was beginning to feel like I was never going to pick up any speed in my running (albeit a relatively slow speed).

After work, I went for a swimming lesson with Lisa. I forgot how hard it was to swim  (well hard if you don't know how to do it very well)!  The coach was pretty good, I am pretty sure I looked awkward and was struggling but am determined to get better.  The lesson was 30 minutes and then we practiced for another 30 minutes. I hope to go back again later this week.
