I smell like chlorine. The lifeguard laughed at me this morning when I ran from the locker room to the pool toys, grabbed a pull buoy, and ran to the edge of the pool where I immediately sat down and put my feet in the water. The pool deck was so cold it hurt. But the water was nice (the sign claimed 80 degrees, but it claimed that Monday, too, and the whole board looked unchanged). And there was steam comming off the water. I jumped in, and right into my set. The arm that was in recovery freezing with each stroke for the warmup, but soon I was in a rhythm. 2100 yards later I climbed out, returned the pool buoy, and walked to the locker room. By the time I was there I was wishing I had ran as my feet had frozen. And the warm shower was hard to leave.
No really, it’s cold here today! There was even ice on my windshield!! I think that’s the first time EV4R for me while living in Southern CA.
