Sunday- May 12,2013

So I'm finally getting back in the pool and starting from scratch. It's been 15 months since I've gotten in the pool and I know it's gonna be a long road back. I'm overweight and way outta shape but I did get in yesterday and my body and muscles still remember how to swim and I actually felt okay...although slow and no endurance whatsoever. So the county I live in just opened a new $16M facility that is pretty awesome and is only 3-4 miles from my house. Tomorrow will be the first step in a journey of a thousand miles. I probably will not compete until 2014 and again will train and write my own workouts. I was pretty successful the few years when I came back to swimming so why change that...plus my coaching and workouts are FREE! Here are a few pics of the new facility:

-First time back in the pool in a while.
-So for those that care, I've been doing some PT work (that's really FT) doing Home Depot resets out in their stores. Generally I'm up at 5:30am and get home about 7-8pm four days a week. So I have NO time to really swim regularly. I'm pretty much just taking the Spring off from competing and will resume once I'm back working FT on a regular schedule. Sucks, but such is life at the moment. Its dictating to me currently so I gotta roll with the punches.
