Back in the Pool

Tuesday, December 16th, 2008

My sweet wife insisted that I get out of bed this morning and get to the Y for some exercise.  I complied, but somewhat reluctantly.  C: the alarm had only gone off once, I swear.  But thanks for threatening the cold water.

Got out of the driveway and the Jeep was slipping and sliding.  Noticed fine particles falling from the sky.  Realised it must be sleeting/snowing/freezing raining.  Slowly made it to the Y with little trouble.  Getting across the parking lot on foot was much more of a feat.  Got in about 10 minutes of stretching, and sauntered over to the pool.  Not a soul in the water, so had the enjoyment of making waves in an otherwise still body of water.  Not too much has been lost in form during the 5 month layoff.  But I’ve definitely not been using those swimming muscles.  I’m not looking forward to tomorrow am.  Put in 3x 150m free and 3x 100m breast.  Good stuff until getting on I-35 to head to work.  The normally 20-25 min commute turned into 1.25 hours.  Bleech.
