Good News / Bad News

>> Monday, January 15, 2007

First, the good news:

On Saturday, I went for my longest swim ever. I did 50 laps in the Y’s 25-yard pool; that's nearly a mile and a half! I didn’t push off the walls at all (to mimic open-water swimming), and my total time was 1 hour, 0 minutes, and 22 seconds. I know it's slow, but this is major for me.

Now, the bad news:

It snowed. That’s not the bad news. I don’t need to get anywhere, so I can let the snow plows work while staying in my neighborhood. The bad news is that my favorite winter activity is extreme sledding, and because of my damn knee, I need to stay away from climbing hills. Dagnabit. A good afternoon of sledding would probably put my IT band recovery back 2 months. Oh well, no sledding for me.

Oh, one more piece of good news / bad news: Our big order from Swimoutlet came in. That’s the good news. The bad news is that my sister-in-law’s “grab bag” swimsuit is SUPER ugly. Although, due to the hilariousness of the situation, I guess that’s also good news (at least for everyone in the world except for her). Sorry Steph!

She's not sure whether to laugh or cry

Thanks for the comment on the bike. I finally broke down and bought it last week. I went for my first fitting on Friday, I’m so glad I did it!

One positive note on the swim suit... You’re not going to have any trouble spotting her in the open water!

Thanks. Now I know what I have to look forward to with MY grab bag Speedo. ;-) Clearly there is hilarity in my future.
