First experiment with rehab swimming at metropolitan pool.  The good: pool relatively empty at 2pm on a weekday.  The bad: showers only operate at scalding temperature.  Now look half-bathed (doesn’t help that I forgot to bring along any kind of grooming tool!) and pretty sure I smell like chlorine 🙂

Swimming

38 laps (~0.5 miles) in about half an hour.  All backstroke since the goggles I ordered haven’t arrived yet.  Found myself pretty winded by swimming in general… and when I got out of the pool my legs felt like lead.  AWESOME!!  I feel better about things.  Will experiment more with timed interval swimming going forward.

Next time must remember to bring: waterproof watch, comb.
