This post is brought to you from the backseat of a pontiac G6 between two car seats. No grown adult should physically be able to do this, but somehow I wedged myself in here. I’ll chalk this up to one of those “seemed like a great idea at the time” life experiences, haha. And to make matters more, uh, exciting…we left southern NH at 7:30 a.m. Currently, at 6:36 p.m., we are merely in Delaware. For those of you not familiar with I-95, 11 hours should have us atleast in Southern VA by now.
Alas, nothing I can do but blog on the blackberry between the glute and quad spasms. Note to self: time to purchase a mini-van!
Christmas at my parents house was very nice. Not exactly relaxing, as having two toddlers ANYWHERE other than your own home or a fenced in soccer field can be exhausting. Oh, and the baby decided to act like a newborn again and wake up about every hour or two throughout the night. Yaay! But as always, it’s great to be with family, especially for the holidays.
I am looking forward to getting started on 2010 training. The race schedule has been changed about 115 times in the last month. But one thing is for sure: I need to get in the swimming pool. Holly lovingly reminded me of this about 10 times this weekend. She is the Iron-wise-one so I know she is right!
I’ve been putting it off, with various excuses: school, finals, the holidays, etc. But now I have no more excuses,so I might as well admit: I’m a little scared. I can’t even swim 25 yards in a pool without feeling like I’m going to drown. It’s HARD! While I may not always be fast or in the best of shape, running and biking almost always feels natural. Floundering in the pool does not.
Alas, Irongirl isn’t going to swim for itself, and neither is the sprint tri at my school in April, so I NEED to get my feet wet. Literally. Tomorrow, when I’m out of the backseat of this sardine can, err I mean car, I vow to email the pool director at school and schedule my swimming lessons.
There, I’ve publically announced my intentions. Anyone know where I can aquire a set of gills and fins?
