I just couldn't do it this morning...

Monday I got up and went swimming. I had not slept well Sunday night due to some problems during the day and when I got to the pool I really had to push myself. Hard. I did, but I still fell short of my goal of 1500 m. I was tired. So I ended up at around 1000 and called it good. I had had a good workout and that was more important than the number of meters swam.

Yesterday when I woke up it was 64F outside. That's freaking cold. But I got up and did my 20 minute run. I never really got warm. It was hard but I did it.

Today I was supposed to go swimming. When I woke it was so cold there was no way I was getting out of bed. The temperature gauge says 61F now. I'm guessing that an hour ago it was in the 50's. And yes, the temperature can change that much in that short a time. This is freaking crazy. So I did not get up to go swimming, I just couldn't do it. I'm thinking of changing my schedule around anyway because I want to start getting ocean swims in on the weekend. I can't swim more then 3 times a week with my shoulder so I may cut back to 2 pools swims and then 1 ocean swim. At least for a few weeks. Once I build my shoulder back up I should be able to swim 4 times a week.

So that's my story this morning. We are supposed to get some rain today so hopefully that will warm things up :)

So I guess you're not into cross country skiing or snowshoeing. I know 61 degrees is cold for Hawaii and for you, but it just cracks me-- here in NY 61 degrees would feel like a heat wave right about now!

End of the year

 and I am just so completely done. I'm not necessarily tired. I'm worn out. I'm worn down. My soul has been drained out of me. I...
