10:00am - I'm not sure what I'm going to do for a workout today.  My plan for this week and next is very fluid, as I recover from Cranberry and get ready for another Oly next weekend.  This week I'm also busy with my kids, who start kindegarten tomorrow.

I had hoped to swim some laps this week, but my primary pool (Metrowest YMCA in Framingham) and backup pool (Atkinson Pool in Sudbury) are both closed for their yearly maintenance shutdowns.  But, I found out today that a woman I recently met can get me into this swanky health club in Sudbury, since she works there on the weekends.  I'm thinking that maybe I'll head up there tonight.

7:00pm - After dinner I went to check out the health club where my friend works.  It has a nice, 6-lane 25-yard pool.  Except for a few folks taking scuba lessons in the deep end of one lane, I was the only one there.

11:30am - Today I am working from home, so I took a quick break to jump on the treadmill.  Normally I would want to run outside, but I just got two new pairs of running shoes so I want to check them out (and break them in) inside first, in case I need to send them back.  I also have blisters on both heels from the race on Sunday, so I wanted to see how they felt.  With bandaids and socks on, they were fine.

Recovery day.

Was getting restless at the office, so I went out for a walk.

Tonight I had a dinner date with my two daughters.  Mom had a dinner meeting, so I picked the girls up from preschool and then took them out for pizza.  After getting them home and in bed, I plopped down on the couch and before I knew it I was asleep.  I woke up around midnight and crawled into bed, but could not get back to sleep.  Cry

Update: At dinner, I mentioned to the girls (they're 5 years old) that I was asked to be a swimming teacher.  They both thought that it was a great idea.  After a few minutes, one of them asked me if I was asked to be a teacher before or after I did my swimming.  When I told her that they asked me after I swam, she said "they must have asked you because they saw that you were a great swimmer".  Boy, do I love my kids!  Smile
