I got a lot done today with the girls under supervision and being kept happy.
First I went to the morning lap swim at the town pool. A couple of our local residents had the same idea.
I did a total of 2000 yards in something less than the hour it was open, including some balance drills, some flipper and paddle work, and two 500-yard continuous sets at a fairly comfortable but brisk (for me) pace in 12:13 and 12:29. Yeah, in a 25-yard pool with open turns - do you think I should learn how to do flip turns this summer just to speed up my pool times?
Then I got out Old Clunker for a ride around town, since Buttercup is still in the bike hospital. Notice the sophisticated water carrying system?
I think this is either Cheney's or Rumsfeld's place. Nobody else has a steel gate and a flag at the end of the driveway. Not to mention the bizarre camera in the box on the right, badly disguised as an owl house.
After all that I still had another half-hour of free time, so I went over to the track for MORE! I finished a couple of miles - I didn't feel too peppy, and it was getting hot, but I jogged them in 12:17 and 11:51.
Yay! That's not a bad day's work for me! Seven workout hours so far this week, including a complete rest day, and it's only Wednesday! Woot!
