Up & At ‘Em

I was up and about early this morning and managed to meet Cathy at Barton Springs pool for a 7:00AM swim. I just wore my sleeveless wetsuit top over my swimsuit; when I got in the pool, the water actually took my breath away. I was amazed–we swam in water 10 degrees colder at Ironman Coeur d’Alene…it just goes to show how much being prepared (and wearing a full wet suit) can do for you.

This was only my second time in the pool since IM CdA, and I felt it. I swam slowly, and it felt taxing instead of relaxing. To be honest, my heart just wasn’t in it.

The weather was overcast and drizzly, and the water was cloudy and murky.

However, the run afterwards was great!  I tried to keep up with Cathy and keep up my knees and not shuffle.

I am not really in the mood to do much, but a trip to the grocery store looms in my future today.

Ugh.
