Back in the pool on Monday. Swam a really nice warmup. There had been a girl swimming a really slow, really wide side stroke in my "fast" lane, and after a couple laps she moved over. Yay! Common sense is not dead.
Warmed up thinking about catch, and elbows up, and head down. Keeping tabs on how my body was feeling. Good. Happy to be in the water. Did 5 x 100 on 2 minutes. These were all done in about minute and 43 or 44 seconds, which I'm pretty pleased with. Cool down. A little over a half hour total.
Did some core work and stretching in the dive tank, and a short deep water run, very easy. My legs didn't know quite what to think of that. Soaked in the hot tub, and boy is it nice!
Then over to Market Mall to join the line for an iPhone 4. I got there about 8 and there were already 30 people ahead of me. More joined the line. A while later the Apple people got us organized, figuring out who wanted what and matching the line to the number of phones in stock. Not many today, there was only 6 people in the line behind me when they finished that.
So now I have one. Set up my home wi-fi network again, but I'm not totally sure the phone recognizes it or is getting web pages through it. It's been fun setting things up, and figuring out how it works. Linda is going to laugh when she realizes what ring tone I'm using for her. And I did my very first video, using Amelia the Cat as a reluctant subject.
I've been trolling through the many, many, MANY apps out there. Holy crap are there ever a lot of them, and most of them seem to be on the wrong side of useful. Any advice on which ones are working for you iphone users out there? And no, this was not written on the iPhone. I'm still training my thumbs how to type. It's funny, my eyes have no idea where any of the letters on the keyboard are because my fingers know. I very rarely actually look at a keyboard.
Low key today, short walk, and a massage.
So please, iPhone users, tell me which apps you love, which you hated, and most of all, the game you wish you had never loaded because you can't stop playing it.
