I blew the posting everyday and I blew the 30 days of swimming. UGH!!!!!
First, yesterday was crazy busy. I had a ton of errands to run and by the time I got a chance to sit down at the computer I had nothing to say - too tired. But that also explains why I didn't swim. Who knew the 2 pools in my area don't open until 1 p.m. How ridiculous is that???
I headed out early to get my swim in before my errands started. The Y is closed. That's okay, there's a community pool. Ummm, yeah, not open either. WTF????? That's okay. I live on an island I can swim in the ocean. Ummmm, yeah, not so much. The rains the past week have turned much of the near shore area brown. As a water chemist I know what's in that brown water and it ain't going to be me!!! I could have traveled to the other side of the island and swam there but that would have made my day just that much longer. So I decided to bail on the swimming and try and get my errands done.
By the time errands were run and chores were done I was exhausted and had nothing intelligent to say. I put on IMFL and watched some of the bloggers finish (love being 5 hours behind :).
So today I have the same issues with the pool/ocean so I'm not sure what I'm going to do. Again, I could drive to the other side of the island but driving 45 minutes for a 30 minute swim seems just plain silly. Maybe I'll push off the 30 days of swimming for just a little bit. I should work the logistics out first.
I have also had a very low grade headache for 2 days. It's not enough to be really painful just enough to be annoying. I hate taking any medicine (even aspirin) unless I'm absolutely in agony so I'll suffer through this.
Okay, that's all I have to say. Today is house cleaning - ugh. Luckily it's a very small house.
Oh yeah, I want to send a huge congratulations out to all the folks who did IMFL yesterday. I have now watched IM Kona and IM Florida. I will be doing an Ironman I just don't know when. But a huge congrats to all who toed the line yesterday. Getting there is well over 1/2 the battle.
