Swimtember is over and now it's Swimtober Time! Before looking back let's look ahead to Swimtober. I got a few events here in Florida lined up with the first being a 2.5K Open Water Swim down in Siesta Key. Last year I swam the 1K and didn't actually hate Open Water Swimming. It was my one and only OW. Now I'm back for round two and kicking it up to the 2.5K. Then after that I'm doing a SCM meet down in Orlando. I signed up for all three days but it looks like I'll be skipping Friday and the 1500. But it looks like Saturday and Sunday are a go. I did sandbag my times since last year I slowed up in all my events I added even more time since I'm going slow up this year as well. Getting old and all that shit.

I never did get around to swimming Friday, Saturday or Sunday! I sound like a broken record here in saying "at least I swam." Cuz' really I am lucky to have a pool less than 5 minutes away from home. And if I didn't swim I really would have lost my mind, well more so.
