Lukewarm is not good

Hey Mother Nature. I've come to the realization that I'm OK with it raining once a week. It gets me into the pool without feeling guilty for missing out on a glorious day. And keep those rainy days coming on Wednesdays. That day is working out for me.

The swim went well. I had to retire the out suit and break out the new one for today's 1,700 yard swim. Started with a 200 yard warm up and then did two sets of 600 yards followed by a 200 yard cool down. Like a I said, swim went well. Finished in about 45 minutes.

What didn't go so well? How about a lukewarm hot tub. Not cool. I always treat myself to about 10 minutes in the hot tub after my swim. Calms me down, relaxes me. Feels good. Usually. It didn't do any of that today. I stepped in and I swear, the water was the same temperature as the pool water. Not warm. Not relaxing. Not good feeling. I lasted about 5 minutes. It was miserable. Enjoyed an extra long shower instead.

Now if only the water in my ear would disappear.

You're such an inspiration! I need to get back in the swing of um any sort of aerobic activity possible. Keep on going!!

Oh no....shame about the lukewarm tub! Nice job on the swim though!

How are you liking Life of Pi? I rather enjoyed that book myself!

I liked "Life of Pi." I actually finished it a few days ago and just haven't updated the sidebar.

Although I'm still left wondering if he was sharing the lifeboat with Richard Parker or the cook. Guess that was one of the goals of the book, to make you think.

I'd definitely recommend it to others though.
