well, the cold is almost better and the wound has essentially healed up, so it was finally time to hit the pool again. it was a 39 day break between my last swim so it was a very emotional return for me. i took it slow and easy at first but quickly realized that i had energy! i swam fairly strongly for 37 minutes non-stop. the arms were a little rusty, so i didn't want to over do it. i'll definitely be back in the pool tomorrow!
also ran 11k today. 4 separate short runs. including runs to the pond and to the pool.
definitely a good start to the week!
