Well technically I jumped in as you aren’t suppose to dive in the shallow end of a pool 🙂 That’s right, after 5 long weeks of avoiding it or unable to attend for various reasons, tonight I finally went swimming. As well as I’m doing cardio wise from running and biking swimming is at another level still. Tonight I settled on swimming one length of the pool freestyle and then swam back mostly on my back but not using the back stroke. I would try kicking my way back while on my back and would use my hands and arms under water to both keep me afloat and help pull myself through the water. There’s probably a swim term for this but I’m drawing a big blank. It wasn’t too bad but it would probably be a lot better if I could learn to swim with my head in the water. Oh well baby steps right?
It was pretty hot here again today. It may not be hot for some of you but for our area when it hits 34C/93F for 3 days in a row it’s unusually hot, especially in May. Luckily for us a thunder and lightning storm blew in around 4:30pm. The rain knocked the heat out real quick and actually stopped long enough for our men’s night golf. I was hoping to get in an easy bike ride tonight but decided to go grocery shopping instead. Smoothies just aren’t the same without yogurt in them and I’ve been out of yogurt for over a week!
I’m going to end it here as I’m not really feeling the writing tonight. I’ve tried rewriting some of it but still doesn’t seem right. Maybe it’s the chlorine from the pool affecting my noggin 🙂 Anyways have a good night and I’ll see you tomorrow!
