Swimming and One More Try...

First Master's Swim was tonight. Super nervous but then it was of course fun. Tonight was just short, we swam a 100 (1:48) and a 200 (4:11) (thanks Michelle for clarifying!!) so the coach could see which group we belonged in (Tuesday nights are beginners like me, Weds are the hard cores).

And I made an appointment with a new ankle guy to get the cortisone shot. I need to push this and get one before I resign myself to not running for a while. So Monday afternoon...we'll see. I didn't push with the other guy because it wasn't this bad. And I don't want to go back to that guy because he doesn't take my insurance and I don't want to pay $125 to be told no again. So this will cost $20 and hopefully he'll just do it. There's no downside to trying, worst is it won't work.

Good job on that swim! So cool that you enjoyed it!
FYI- each length of the pool is 25 yards so a 100 is 4 lengths... a 200 is 8 lengths. ;)

Sounds like the swimming has just the perfect timing right now. For me, it kept getting even more fun every session because for a good loooooong time I had nothing to do but improve. Guess I should try to have that attitude with my running right now -- nowhere to go but up ;)

I have to say I was wicked impressed with your 200 time ;) I was thinking what on earth is she doing at masters when she could be training for the Olympics :)

Good for you for still being active despite the pain. I love swimming so I am glad you enjoyed it too!

Those are great times for your first time back to masters. It is fun. The hardest part of masters I find is just getting there.

Hope the cortisone shot works.
