"If the furnace is hot enough, it will burn anything." - John Parker, Once a Runner
Well, the furnace was hot today! But in a most unlikely way! I swam. I swam laps for an hour. Now, this is the deal. It was freezing outside. The Y has a pool outside and it was froze! Now, I was on the inside, of course but by the time I went outside I was burning up! Meghan was shivering next to me and I said, is it really that cold? She looked at me as if I was dumb and said, "yeeeesss...." It felt so good outside, I was 1/2 wet and the cold air just felt so nice. Basically, I was hot! I was thinking about the kind of laps I was doing. There were other swimmers there and they looked so professional and then there was me. But I thought, you know what? A lap is a lap and an hour is an hour its all good!
One thing I thought of was I'd like to start looking around and sign up for a 10K somewhere. I'd like to start training for it. I'd like to do it in under an hour. I think I'm gonna work myself up to that point and then sign up for that run :-) Then after that I think I'd like to do an actual Trail Race! But lets do the 10K first :-)
