Sometimes you just have to laugh!

If you've been reading my blog lately, you'll know that I've been a little down lately. Well, the bad news is that it got worse today. The good news is that I believe I may have bottomed out this morning.

So I went to early church service and planned to go directly to one of the nicer pools to get a good sprint workout in (ah! wide lanes, cool water)...they were closed. Oh well, Mulberry Pool is just down the road and, although the showers aren't as nice, it has a hot tub...oops...not open until noon. OK, I'll just go to the health club and see if I can still make "adult lap swim". Yippee, I made it...still over an hour until the dreaded "Open" swim with kids jumping in your lane and throwing balls" into the lap lanes. I get dressed in the locker room, excited to get my workout in, albeit in a narrow laned, warm pool. Oh look, the "Open" swimmers decided to show up early.

I put in about 600 yards maneuvering around kickboards, pool toys, and oblivious parents before cashing in. I thought about stopping to lecture about the definition of "adult lap swim" but, given my recent mood, thought better of it. I did mention to the staff on the way out that I shouldn't have to enforce their rules and should be able to get my workout at the gym for what I pay for a family membership.

What do I have to do to get a workout?

I'll try again at the masters workout in the morning.
