I watched the traffic via Google maps today. My way home from the gym did not clear up until 11. I actually could go to the city pool some - they have early morning hours Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 6:30-8 which would work. I might try it and then go to the gym mid-mornings on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I love the deep water and miss the chlorine (really - it's so clear - bromine is not) but I don't miss the loud and the crowds and having to bring my own towels and the rough concrete that hurts my feet... oh and the crappy showers...and having to pay when gym is paid for... Maybe I'll go Monday and just see.
Tonight there is a baseball game and I'm ready.
