Weigh-In and Tuesday

I weighed in yesterday at 135.  I did better on my diet last week, but not awesome still.  I am, however, way overdue for my cycle, so I know I'm retaining and whatnot.  :P
Today I ran my 1.5 mile loop in about 20 minutes.  I went in the morning before it got too hot, even though it was certainly warm enough.  However, it was morning when I am at my weakest, lol!  I was sure I could do more, but by the time I finished the loop, I was done in. 
Timpani, flip kicks are that thing that competitive swimmers do to turn at the end of a length.  You know what I mean?  When they flip in the water and kick off the wall.  It's hard.  I have the theory very clear in my head, and I have all summer to figure it out, but my instructor will probably not revisit it as it kicked off that panic attack.  I got a LOT of water up my nose twice in a row (I only tried it twice), and on that second try I lost track of up and down and considering my water trauma, it was just too much.  I do plan on mastering it, just because it caused me problems and things like that need to die for inconveniencing me like that.  :D

Good progress on the running! The heat gets many people who run.

Oh my heck! No wonder you had a panic attack. I call them flip turns, not flip kicks, but I know what you mean about water up your nose. I gave up keeping the water out and now I just do it awkwardly while holding my nose about 1/2 way through. I let got of my nose when I start to come out of it and blow all the air out at that point.
