Most nights that combo works pretty darned well. Last night, not so much. But, even when it doesn't work, no biggie. If I get sleepy in the day, I go to sleep. The Misfit Flash I ordered it supposed to track sleeping too. That might be interesting. I was grateful that today was an early swim day.
The doctor also asked me yesterday how, exactly, I breathe when I swim. I could not tell him. (genius, right?). This morning I found out. I breathe in through my mouth and out through my nose.
Also this morning, while waiting for the group who trains before our swim time to finish, I was chatting with Mary the lifeguard who is also a swim coach. She was giving me critics of the swimmers' bad forms. I told her I'd love to know what I was doing wrong or could be doing better. Please!
So after my first lap, she and Sophie (the other lifeguard) told me that I was picking my head up too high out of the water. I turn my head to the right and when I do so, my left ear should say in the water. And it wasn't. So that's what I worked on today and it was great. (Also I got kudos from both of them for my nail color. Bonus!)
Today is delivery day. I ordered some stuff from Amazon and picked slow delivery (give me that $1 ebook/music credit, please) and some other stuff for regular two day and then one thing for SEND IT FAST, please. And all of it... arrives today. 3 pkg via USPS - they should be here about noonish. One via Ontrack. It should be here about 1ish and One via UPS - I'm guessing about 2.
A handbag (purse?), a wireless extender/switch (dual band to replace my 2.5mhz which keeps dropping out on me), the Misfit Flash, a mini LED string of lights for the kitchen, a plastic wrap dispenser and 5 pounds of spearmint leaf gumdrops.
So big day here. Plus now I have to squeeze in a 20 minute walk or at least a 10 minute one or at least something. I'm cool with starting slow but not starting is not an option.
But, first there needs to be some breakfast.
