There to fore, I travelled the 25 minutes to the Mountain View Aquatic Center in Cobb County. I didn't know quite what to expect. When Dee Dee and I went there for her (our?) swim lesson, it was hoppin. I was a little relieved to see that the parking lot was almost empty. With the clerk's help, I was able to rent a lane for $3.18. LOL... This is much cheaper than a gym membership, overall.
After suiting up, I got to relive the joy of that first plunge. At least their water was warmer than my old gym. My goal for the day was to re-acquaint myself with swimming. I started off with a timed 300 yard warm up. I was a little surprised to come in at 4:46. I thought two minutes per hundred would be more reasonable. Since I didn't really have an official plan, I did 100's, leaving the wall every two minutes. I came in at about 1:40 on each 100, giving me plenty of time to rest. I did this all the way up to the 26th minute and finished with a 200 meter cool down. 1500 meters on my first day back is not soooo shabby! Thanks P90X :-)
Speaking of P90X, I'm hoping to get my photog to take some pics tomorrow. Not only am I trying to assuage your anticipation here, I am warning of you of the half nekkidness to come. Prepare yourself! :-D
