A reader commented on my last post, asking what swim I was talking about. I realize that I haven’t made it “official”. I made plans to do it last year, but every time I went to register online, the site kept telling me to check back. This year, on a whim, I checked on the registration early and it was already open. So, I took the plunge metaphorically and registered for the swim. That’s what I’m training for. It will be in San Francisco, September 17, 2011. Anyone out there who wants to come watch me is invited!
Last night, I swam for an hour with the extra weights, 30 minutes on my arms and 30 minutes on my ankles. It took a little while to get used to it, but then it was fine. I think I’m going to get a second pair so that I’ll have them on all four limbs. Next week is spring break at the college, but the signs say the pool will be open regular hours, so I plan to take advantage of that. And perhaps with the weather getting nicer, I can get the bike off the trainer and back on the road. Although that will mean saying good-bye to Lady Gaga for the time being because I don’t listen to music while I’m biking to anywhere–too distracting.
I’m actually off today (Saturday). I took a vacay day so that I could go to the opening event that the group I dropped out of is holding this afternoon. I can’t remember when the last time I actually had a Saturday off was. Maybe when we went to Australia last year?
I guess I better go get another cup of coffee and enjoy it!
