I'm Lovin' It!!

We tried a new pool today. This one is an outdoor pool that's closer to the job. It's also twice as long!!!! I surprised myself (after getting over the shock of the other end of the pool being much farther away than I thought it was) and actually started to get into a rhythm. The longer pool works better for me; it forces me to pace myself, find my rhythm and swim. The shorter pool never allowed me to do that. Of course, it doesn't hurt that I swam the day before. This is the most pool swimming I've done in at least a couple of years. It's great!

I rediscovered the kickboard today. At one point, I proclaimed to my friend that my kickboard was broken (since I didn't seem to be going anywhere). Actually the kickboard is my best friend. It's allowing me to work my long-forgotten cycling/leg/glute muscles. My plan was to swim twice a week. If I go back tomorrow, and I do plan to do so, that'll be the third time this week. I love this!

You're selling your shortboard, aren't you ?!? That means you'll have to buy another to replace it you know....

What are you talking about, Alan? What do you know? What have you seen? Who's been narcing on me? (Not that I'm admitting to anything.)

Ah, you forget that Slowpolk and I are meticulous Craigslist scourers! Can't miss that paint job!
