"And BOY are my arms tired!"
I swam a mile this morning and OMG are my arms ever feeling it! First off, I was amazed that I could still swim; and to manage that far out of the gate? Well, that was stupendous! But in hind sight it might have just been plain stupid. My arms started feeling it when I got home and started to make some breakfast. You see, I met Diane at 6AM up at the pool and I was just barely awake enough to find where I laid out items from the night before. No time for breakfast and besides I was taught never to eat before the pool. Drowning just is not appealing.
So, I reach up to the cupboard door and pain strikes! These muscles obviously haven't been used in while and they were DEFINITELY letting me know. I managed through making a bowl of cream of wheat for breakfast but I had a full on grimace face when I put the bowl in the microwave which is above the refrig. in my apartment. I was especially glad that I had canisters on the kitchen counter with sugar; a much more manageable level. But later on, I found myself wishing I had mind control to turn off light switches. Oh, to just think that the light switch is on or off in a thought; today it sounds pretty good to me.
During my swim, I discovered that it was time for a new swimsuit. I had this suit for two years but age and chlorine had caught up with it. It felt like I was swimming with a sack on. The whole time I was concerned that it would stay on or some of those folks that wear goggles were going to get an eyeful. Yes, I'm still not wearing goggles when I'm swimming.
