With the rain I was on the fence about swimming today. I set my alarm last night knowing that it was a 50/50 chance that I'd actually go. I didn't prepare like I'd normally do. All I did was put out 2 towels, 2 speed suits and emptied my bag. Just in case. I figured it would be early in the am so I'd need to be a bit prepared. The 4:50 alarm went off and about one second later like clockwork the rain started to fall from the sky. Not just a few drips but it was like someone turned on the big shower faucet in the sky at full blast. That lasted a bit then slowly turned down to a lighter shower. The second alarm I had set went off a bit later and the rain was still falling. At that point I decided to sleep in and skip the meet. It was an outdoor meet and even if the rain was to stop I'd be outside in the damp air all morning. No thank you! So not today!
After I did wake up I ran to the gym and worked out. I figured get my gym weight routine out of the way today. Tomorrow I plan to wake up and go for a run. Since I went to the gym almost around the afternoon time the gym was a bit busy. Still I got in my routine and ran a bit home. Not all the way just to the store. So I missed the first swim meet of 2010. They'll be more.
