I went back to Quarry Lakes one more time this past week. I decided to take a few pictures this time. ;)
There were three lifeguards there and one couple sunbathing. I decided I would wear my two-piece bathing suit so I could at least get a tan while I slowly waded into the water.
I talked to a girl that is training for the Pacific Grove Triathlon next weekend. She was wearing a wetsuit. Smart girl! I stayed in the area that is about 60 yards long, where I could touch in areas if I wanted to. I was able to swim further without stopping this time. I didn't feel as confident as I did the day before but I just kept at it. I was in awe of this older lady that was in the deeper 120 yard area. She was just going back and forth, back and forth, with her head out of the water the entire time, doing freestyle. She looked so relaxed. She was enjoying her time out there in the deep, dark water. God, I hope I'm like that in time for my triathlon.
Friday I went to the pool at 6:45 a.m. to get a swim in before work. I jumped in the fast lane and began my warm up. I quickly realized I was a tad slower than the other two people in that lane. I ended up doing speed drills. I did 20 50's with (probably too much) recovery in between. My arms were very sore the rest of the day. That night my legs felt pretty fatigued. I should try to do that more often I guess.
Boomer and I met Christy yesterday morning for a very enjoyable five mile hike at Garin. We did a bit of running, mostly the downhill portions. It was so nice to see Christy and catch up on a month's worth of STUFF. A month can go by very fast, if you let it.
I bought a Pilates DVD at work and put that in after my hike. This way I can do Pilates more than just the two days a week my gym offers it.
I've been working a TON these last few days. Our big sale ends tomorrow. WOOHOO! I can hardly wait. My patience for stupid people ran out about four days ago!!
Have a happy Labor Day everyone.
