Wed. Jan 30 - Slipping an Evening Swim In

Knew storms were predicted this morning. Got up at 5am and it was windy and a little rainy. Heard some thunder, so, eventhough the radar showed most the storm past, I listened to my body and went back to bed. This evening when I got home, the girls were headed to church, so I turned around and went to the pool for an evening swim. When I got there, I learned that the pool had stayed open for about 30 minutes before closing because of thunder. A good decision this morning!
I was very tired this morning and going back to bed helped. My arms still felt tired tonight, but better. This morning when I weighed, I had lost 5.6 pounds in the last two days. Not sure why. I have been eating, but have had a lot of stress in general and a couple of hard workouts. I'm wondering if the weight loss is part of feeling so tired. Hoe I'm not skin and bones tomorrow.
I did want to get one last workout in for January. Even though yesterday and today were shorter workouts I still put in 54.29 miles in 18 workouts (3+ miles a workout). Last year, I did 53.89 miles in 19 workouts. Now a full rest day tomorrow.
