I get up at 4:45 to head to the pool. I'm a morning person but that doesn't really mean I'm 100% awake at that time. I operate on auto-pilot until I get warmed up in the pool. So, I put my swim bag out the night before w/ clothes on it for the next day. I get up, change into my swim suit, shirt and shorts and head off to the pool. At the pool, I take off my shirt and shorts and I'm ready to swim. No need to go change. It's worked well for me for the last 4 years and I've never really had a problem until today. After the DST change, I've really been on auto-pilot in the mornings and that's a problem when one little thing goes wrong. This morning, I put my underwear on, put my shorts and shirt on and headed to the pool. When I got out to the pool deck, I took my shirt off and got my shorts down to my knees and... Yikes! That's not my swimsuit, it's my underwear. At least I remembered to put on underwear.
Swam w/ Dave, Dave and Dave. Pool temp was back to a reasonable 84 this morning.
