Back in the water and it feels so good
I never thought I would actually look forward to getting back in the pool, but aaaahhhhh did it feel good to swim a few laps this morning.
I was even up before my 5:10 a.m. alarm so I knew I would be ready to go and waiting at the pool door when the lifeguard unlocked it. It's a sickness, I know.
I took it easy and only did 2000 meters, the first half drills, and I was slow. But, this was not unexpected. It had been two weeks (!!!) since I hit the pool, and a week and a half since I did any swimming at all.
Now, let's see what work I can do in the water between now and race day. The countdown stands at 39 days. Eeek!
