I tried to push myself as hard as I could. I'm sure the really-buff-I'm-such-an-awesome-swimmer guy next to me was rolling his eyes as I sat at the side of the pool gasping for air after my sprints, but I felt like I was working hard. Yay for doing a hard solo workout. But get this. Someone stole my towel. Yup. Stole my towel. It was quite the interesting feat trying to get dry without a towel (I now know that you can get towels from the gym desk...). I was annoyed that someone would take my towel. Maybe I should have the MIL monogram "Lori's" into a towel. Hmmm. My birthday IS coming up....
It was a good workout. There were a lot of positives this morning:
- I realized I'm a LOT stronger and more fit than I was last time I swam
- I'm more confident in my athleticism
- I'm more determined to actually DO a triathlon, which pushes me to do better in the pool.
Yippee for a good workout!
