I dream of water

It has been awhile since I’ve written here!  And even longer since I’ve been in the pool.  Rediscovering my love of swimming has definitely been one of the highlights of 2012.  But, even here in SoCal, it gets a little too cold to hit the outdoor pool, so I’ve retired my suits for a little while.  I still have hope that I can make it to my gym’s other location sometime soon that has an indoor pool.

Training has been going along very well.  I’ve been lifting heavy the last few weeks, which always leaves me feeling so strong and accomplished.  I haven’t been great about cardio on my solo days.  Also, I’m wearing glasses full time until the end of the month.  I’m getting LASIK in a couple of weeks, so I have to take a break from contacts.  Which makes me sad.  Working out in my glasses is so very annoying.  I actually ask people to push my glasses up on my face when I’m working out.

At night, I dream of swimming, of being in open water, and the calm, even flow of my motion.  Dreams like that are awesome and although I do wake up disappointed that they aren’t real, they propel me forward.
