I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Swimming is really f-ing hard.
I’m not as pathetic as I was last year, when I started training for my first (failed) triathlon, but still. I swam a total of about 600 meters (the longest was 50 at a stretch–twice) in 30 minutes today. Yes, real swimmers, make fun of me, I can take it. To top it all off, my form is all jacked up because my body is feeling worn out, though I’m not sure why, because I’m not doing anything.
Oh well–I’ll be back tomorrow with the running talk. I’d like to do 4 or 5 if the sidewalks downtown are clear, so fingers crossed. Today I spent the morning at jury duty. They paid me $30 to sit in a room for three hours and read. I asked if I could come back next week. Sadly, it’ll be 3 years until they need me again.
