Cross Training

Somehow I got it in my head that I want to try doing triathlons.  Not sure how this crazy idea got in there, but it is most definitely there.  Of course, if that is ever going to go anywhere I can’t just keep running and running – there are two other disciplines in there, you know?

So this morning, for the first time in my life, I went to the pool with the express intention of swimming laps.  I even bought goggles.  And I have two impressions:

  1.  That shit is hard.  Holy moly.
  2. I think I am going to like it.  Because of the pool’s hours I’ll be starting out only going one or two days a week – but I think I will like it.  I will definitely go back tomorrow.

Baby steps, you know?
