Went back to the pool yesterday and today, and taking Cassie's advice, I just took it slow and easy. I am already feeling sooo much better about the swimming. I swam 500 yds today without stopping, going slow and easy. Cassie was right! (not that I doubted her) I think I was trying to swim too fast that first day. I'll work on speed in time. I've got to be able to finish first. I thought I was doing really good swimming 500 yds until I read Sarah does that just for a warm-up. ha-ha. I'll get there eventually. I've got lots of determination!
When I got home I ran 3 miles on trails here at the house. And, I'm happy to let Edwin know, I am showing my kids a restaurant tonight.
