Wednesday - Swim and Run (Graduation Day!)

Today is a celebration day! 3 years, one month and 2 days ago I started to learn how to swim (http://www.gregcollett.com/html/IronTraining/WebCal/wc20060109.html) . Today the coach moved me from the slow lane, to the quick side of the slow lane! Lane 2. YEA – I’m not on the wall anymore. Just think, by the time I’m 65, I could make it to the ‘Medium’ lane. This training really works!

I swam at Glendon for an hour today. Part way through the class Adam moved me over to lane 2. I feel like I've moved from public school to high school. Great to graduate, but now I'm the new guy again, and fighting like made to catch up to everyone! Such is progress! Life is Good!

The minute I moved over I passed Cathy who was coming the other way. We were swimming with paddles and pull-buoy. We both took a stroke at the same time. Our paddles hit and the band on hers broke! I'm sure she's VERY happy that I moved into her lane! :-( We'll see how I stand up with the full gang on Friday at the big pool.

I headed back up to the club and did my 30 minute hill run on the treadmill. I was looking at the sidewalk along Van Dorf as I drove back to the club. It probably is a 2 minute hill, but it was wet and muddy. I whimped out with Bryans line. "I don'[t want to get my new shoes dirty!"

I'd forgotten to bring something to eat with me for during the drive from the pool to the club. I had a gel just before starting to run and then a bottle of e-Load while I ran.

It felt good. Nothing hurts. I'll keep my fingers crossed for another 165 days of staying injury free!
