Don’t Let Them Drown

Last night I finally made it to the pool. It was pretty busy, but it slowed down after the first wave of people started filing out. It had been awhile since I was in the in water but things felt ok. I consider this a good thing with having to spend the next two days at lifeguard training. (and next weekend too, blah!) The longest part of my workout was a 500 had I’ll have to do as part of the lifeguarding test. I wanted to make sure I can still swim that far. I don’t think I’ve swam that far in one shot since the half IM. It wasn’t blazing fast by any means, but I think I should be ok for the test.

Tonight it will be poker with the fellas. Unfortunately there will be no drinking or a real late night for me. It just wouldn’t be the best thing before the clinic and I’m sure I’ll catch the usual flack when I bail early. It’s to be expected but all in jest. Maybe I can win a bunch early and run away will all there money. hehe

I hope you all have a great weekend. Mine will consist of sleeping, eating, and trying not to let people drown. We’ll see how that last one goes. Take care…

You gotta know when to hold 'em. Know when to fold 'em.

Speaking of which, have you ever been to ?

Seriously. Go now.

At least you're doing lifeguarding during the off-season. I had to do the 500 yd test the day after my very first triathlon. One week intensive lifeguarding test during the recovery week from a triathlon - yeah...that was fun! :) Enjoy those deep water spinals!

Walchka, you were made to be a lifeguard! You'll be fine. Think of all the 16 year olds who do it!

On a side note, I have gone swimming TWICE now this year. Yesterday I swam a mile. I still smell like chlorine, too...
