Well, I went to the pool yesterday for a swimming test drive. Umm, apparently 'used to be a strong swimmer' doesn't translate into 'still a strong swimmer'. I don't remember swimming being that danged hard! I've still got the technique, but absolutely NO endurance. I can't believe I can run 31 miles pretty easily, but two laps across the pool and I'm about to fall out. Got lots of work to do in this department. I'm going back tomorrow.
Yesterday I was also supposed to run at the park with Ken, but just about the time I pulled through the park gate, the pool repairman that I have been waiting on for 3 weeks called and informed me his was sitting at my gate. Thanks for the notice...geez. So, I brought Ken back home with me, and we ran trails behind my house. I'm estimating about 5 miles.
Today I was going to try and ride my bike all the way to Madisonville on the I45 feeder road, but just past FM 2989 I realized I was no longer on the feeder road - I was on the entrance ramp to the interstate. Yikes! So, FM 2989 is as far as I could go. (around 25 miles round trip) Probably a good thing. I forgot to fill my water bottle up before I left. I was parched - almost drank out of a ditch.
I just finished a three mile run here at the house (which makes my April total 114.5), and now I gotta go cook. These danged kids want dinner every night - crazy.
