A friend of mine sent this to me today and it is exactly how I felt swimming butterfly today! Butterfly after that big run was NOT pretty.
The plan for today was to swim in the morning, and run 4 miles in the evening. When the alarm on my phone went off at 5, I hit snooze. I can hit snooze 3 times (at five minute intervals) on my phone; the fourth time, the alarm shuts off. I had 15 minutes to …
Why am I going outside. She doesn’t know why either. I’m going to quit until spring comes. See you suckers on the other side. Just kidding. Packing my gym bag now.
This is what I imagine happening whenever I swim in a lake. In particular, This is my fear for that big open water swim in Lake Superior held in August every year. Because obviously there are sharks in the Great Lakes. From Twitter this morning: @EarthPix’s Tweet: https://twitter.com/EarthPix/status/437234610142216192
