slow and easy swim

I was surprised to see the parking lot at FOMC so empty this morning. I guess the New Year's Resolution rush is over, but there might be a few more spasms of rectitude. Or maybe they're on vacation.

1500 m in 29:51
15 min pool pilates

total 45 min.

There were a few adventures along the way this morning. One came from my wedding ring flying off a few laps in and having to dive for it. Good thing the other people I was sharing the lane with weren't right behind me. I jammed it onto my right hand and carried on. My hands are tired and beat up from the weekend glassblowing course, to say nothing of being dry as a bone.

The other adventure was trying to click the lap button on my watch every hundred meters while turning. That's a bit trickier than it sounds when doing open turns. Today I tried clicking the button on the way into the turn. Maybe next time I'll try on the way out. And if that doesn't work, I guess I'll have to learn flip turns and breath some other time.

Stupid xl. I tried graphing the results to see how much I varied between laps. I ended up having to convert to seconds. XL kept changing the format on me no matter what format I select. I find xl is really stupid about dates and times in ways that annoy me. Anyways, the fasted lap was 1:51 and was the last, deliberately swum a little quicker to stay under the 30 min 1500 m pace. The slowest was 2 min 3 seconds or so.

I'm just beat this morning. I was seriously contemplating having a coffee to wake up, but then realized there was nothing I had to get done today that couldn't be done in my current fog. I could go for a napppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppp
