Days Till SC Zones

Yesterday at noon practice, I attempted the hour swim, but I swam a hard on both Tue and Wed mornings, which proved to be a bad idea. We dove in at 12:05 & I swam 3000, but felt like I was on the verge of cramps & I started getting hot so I decided to end my attempt & maybe try again on Sunday, or not.

Today I didn't set my alarm and woke up at 5:55, which is late, I need to leave my house by 5:45 to get to 6:30 practice with good traffic. But I hit the road to do whatever I could, & encountered much more traffic than normal which delayed my arrival.

    wow! 40-45 minutes of travel in "good traffic" to get to the pool for practice!???!?! That's either a helluva lotta miles, or lots of stoplights that don't change to green. Dedication for sure.
    I guess I'm spoiled being in a smaller town where I can get anywhere in 10-20 minutes at most.
