I've been emerging from what has proven to be a difficult winter, a casualty of which was my daily swimming routine. I am beginning to return to that routine, but this week have been foiled twice already in getting in my time at the pool!
Yesterday I arrived at the pool and was about to get out of the car when I realized that I had left my bag at home. No suit, towel, etc. The timing on that occasion didn't allow for me simply to return home to retrieve my things and head back to the pool, so I had to abandon that effort.
This morning I got to the pool at a good time, donned cap and goggles, showered and headed out of the locker room. The pool was closed! A thunderstorm with lightning was the culprit this time. The indoor and outdoor pools are linked through a common treatment and filtration system, so there went today's plan! To make up for yesterday's lack of exercise Ken and I took the dogs for a long walk before dinner. With today's rain a repeat of that doesn't seem likely! Oh well. At least I've got a little extra time to take care of some things that would have had to wait until later.
Tomorrow--swim or bust!
