back in the pool, that is. only the 5th time all year that i swam 5k. it was an excellent swim from start to finish. extra satisfying given that i entered the swim tired having already run 10k earlier in the day. i got off to a very fast start, covering 2.5k in 47 minutes and still feeling strong. i slowed down a little and managed to finish at the 100 minute mark, with energy to spare! then i fed the duckies in celebration.
I gained a few pounds in August from the reduced activity, but the feet are almost 100% so i will be back at my normal weekly running routine. with some additional time in the pool, i should be able to drop back down a few.
