Work Hard, Play Hard

I DID go swimming yesterday. I only made it 400 yards. I feel like I'm a relatively strong swimmer... but I get worn out really quickly. I take a breath every stroke and it STILL doesn't seem to be enough.

The surprise of the week is that I got up at 5:45 this morning and went for a run. My runs are usually 2.3 miles, simply because that's how far the jogging path near our apartment is. I need to plot out something a little longer, though.

Ryan, Maggie, and I are headed to Michigan this weekend. We'll be staying with my parents at a relative's lake house. I'm excited to do some boating and water skiing and maybe even a little open water swimming (!).

I'll be back on Monday with a review of my NU Dolphin Waterproof MP3 player (it was my prize for winning 2nd place in this essay contest).

Congrats on your placement in the contesst. A little open water swimming can be fun, or a little scary.

At least you got into the pool and swam a little. Looking forward to your review of the Dolfin Underwater MP3 player!

Eeek, I'm not sure that I would like open water swimming. Good luck! (Although, by now I think that you're already back.. doh)
