3rd swim day in a row and a little torture from Richard

Another 2-a-day day for me….This time I met June at the pool for a swim at Memorial Park. This is the 1st time I’ve been to the Memorial Pool since I attempted to take lessons there during my 1st summer of grad school. And, this was the 1st time I’ve been to this pool in the morning, so I had no idea what to expect.

There was a bit of trouble with the lane divider thingy, so June and I ended up sharing a really narrow lane but it was all good – we both got in some good laps. It was great to swim outdoors again and it was great to swim with a friend. Afterwards, I got ready for work at the tennis center…lemme tell you, it was hoppin’ over there! I used to run in the morning at Memorial when we lived closer and it was never very crowded! I actually had to hang out and wait for a shower. Fortunately, I had plenty of time to get ready and still make it to work on time. I even had some time for some Smoothie King!

During lunch, I headed over to spin class at the Y. Many thanks to torturer instructor, Richard, for all the grueling jumps. Oh and the “raise the roof” thing kicked my arse as well. But, I have to admit, there’s nothing better than going back to work with Jello legs.

Wow, did I just type that? :-)

Isn't it funny how tough coaches and instructors take on a different role once they've caused us so much pain!?!

Yeah to jello legs!

I've been swimming at the Memorial park pool all summer. I like it a lot better than the Y, so I use it as much as possible when its open.
