Early today, I got a sneak peek into the blogosphere and discovered 21CM had written a post on swimming. It struck me as funny because I had purposely left my running and cycling clothes at home. I was planning an easy swim at the YMCA after work.
My chosen cross training sport for the day had a dual purpose; I would get some easy recovery exercise and also give YaYa some extra time in the pool. Later in the day, I discovered that Cindy had also posted on swimming. Hum? There must be something in the water.
Well, the homework, football practice, even the dog, and dinner seemed to be getting in the way of my plans. But I didn’t fully let go of my plans to swim. I just went with the flow and finally, at 7:30 pm, I was on my way to the pool with not only YaYa but BoBo too.
I made my way to the lap swimming lane while the boys jumped in the open swim area. Just moments later however, they were both by my side. They wanted to work out with me.
Now the rule for the lap swim lane is that you must keep moving, but that wasn’t a problem. We did kick-board races, and I came up with various drills to keep them in constant motion. We worked on freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke kicks, and dolphin kicks. I have no idea how much we swam but we were at it for a full hour.
YaYa is now sound asleep in his bed. BoBo and I are not far behind him.
Goodnight everyone; sweet dreams.
