Senior Wednesday

Another wonderful morning swim today.  I ended up going further than usual because the life guards broke their routine.  The lifeguards change every 15 minutes. In the morning there are two of them - usually Coreen and Texas.  Coreen starts and every 15 minutes they switch off.  So... I swim Coreen, then Texas, then Coreen, then Texas and when Coreen comes back for the third time, I know it's been an hour and without even looking at my finger counter, I know I've done 80 laps and it's 7:30 and I'm done.  But today, I didn't check the counter or the clock until after my shower when I noticed it was almost 8!  And I looked at my counter and it said 96.  I guess they must have missed the 15 minute switch time by a bit.  funny and oh what a Routine Rita I am.

I watched one of the swimming DVD's last night and today tried to pay closer attention to what I was doing.  Turns out, I'm pretty much doing it right.  I did solve a mystery, I think.  My right arm has always gotten more tired than the rest of me almost bordering on sore.  Which is weird because it's the arm that does the least amount of work, really.  But today I finally noticed why.  When I get to the end of the pool, I reach out with my right hand and pull myself around with it.  And, usually not gently or slowly.  I'm wearing it down!   I then tried to use my left hand for the job and that kind of worked.  I'm going to study turns on the DVD's today.  There's no way I'll ever be doing the flip turn that the pros do, but maybe I can find a better way anyway.

The new Brandy Clark album isn't fabulous - at least not so far. I need to hear it more.  She co-wrote my favorite song Follow Your Arrow that Kasey Musgraves does so maybe I'm just not hearing the new stuff well enough yet.

I'm to the Goodwill today.  I don't really need anything but that won't stop me from shopping.  I do need to drop off my donations.  I might combine the trip with lunch out.  Maybe.

I just remembered the World Series game tonight... wonder if I'll remember tonight?
