Just a song before I go....

Actually a note before bed.

Today was great. I got up and got a short bike ride in between rain storms - that was great. Then tonight after work I had the best swim; it was one of those times I felt like I could have swum forever. I have a new "lap" from my house down the the old jet ski area. I don't know exactly how far that is since it's open ocean but I'm guesstimating it's at least 400m one way. I did 2 full laps so that should be about 1600m in 24 minutes. That's awesome for me. The tide was coming in so it was a little rough but what a great swim. I'm reaching the point where I don't freak out if I can't get a breath when I'm planning or I get water in my mouth or nose. I'm learning to handle all these situations and starting to feel really comfortable in the ocean. I can also feel it in my arms after I swim so I think I'm using my arms properly. I'm really beginning to think that all those lessons from high swim team are coming back. I'm very happy.


I've begun a little piggy bank where I put a quarter in for every exercise session I complete. In the last 2 days I've racked up $2.00 already. I just have to decide what I'm going to spend it on!! Something to sleep on - goodnight...

New bike stuff, of course!!!

Feel like I've fallen into a hole

For years I lived my life in the 'when'. When I start running again. When I start eating right.... When I do this.... or that......
