When I was a member at Ballys, I occasionally used the pool there but I really didn’t like it because the water was too warm (good for the old folks who wanted to do Aquasize) and the pool just never felt clean. The pools here are kept at 70 (diving well), 74 (main pool) and 84 (swimming lesson pool). So far I’ve only swam in the diving well and the main pool.
The cool water is really refreshing for doing laps and since the water is cooler, the air is fresher too. It doesn’t feel like a sauna when I take a breath. Since I went in the morning yesterday, I also didn’t need to contend with the high school teams. That means that I was able to try out the main pool. Of course I loved it. It was nice to have the flags above the lanes so that I knew when to flip for my back stroke. That is of course if I was actually doing flip turns. I feel a little bit out of practice with those.
Check out this yummy snack platter that I shared with the Boyfriend this afternoon. Triscuits, ham and colby cheese with carrot sticks, apples and Dark Chocolate Dreams and The Bee’s Knees.
We had a picnic right in the living room (we don’t currently have a couch to veg out on) while we were watching the local attractions On Demand show. Lots of cool stuff to do in this area!
I’m heading over to my friend Mel’s house now. I don’t know how many miles we’ll be doing, but we’re trying to get in our miles for the Wine and Dine half in the evenings so our bodies don’t revolt during the race.
