due to power outages and scheduling conflicts, today’s yoga class was cancelled. good thing I had a full swim kit prepared and so, half hour in the pool means a sobering assessment of my aerobic capacity. damn! swimming is hard. my heart quickens, my body warms in just 10 minutes of freestyle: I’m making “S” shapes, I’m angling my ‘bows, my legs are aflutter and trying as best I can to slow it down. I watched the 2010 Ironman World Championships on New Year’s Day (NBC-Universal is awesome) and just itching to move myself out of the past two weeks of doldrums.
