Week 8 has started!

For some reason, D and I started Week 8 yesterday although it is supposed to start today. So today is a rest day, thank god!

Yesterday we went to the pool. It was supposed to be a 20 minute swim. We got there, and it looked like 1 lane was opened, and the other was being cleaned. I asked the cashier/enforcement officer, he said both lanes were open.

We went in and did the whole shower thing. Got in the pool. The manager (who I called a bitch last week) was swimming laps in the non-cleaning lane. She said to just swim around the vacuum...the cleaner was gone. No biggie. I just swam down the left side, with D behind me, since we were the only ones in the lane. Well, that caused some guy in the other lane to want to swim with us. So now we had to do the circular thing and swim over/under all the hoses. At 200m, D informed me the vacuum was now on the sidewalk because he put it there. OK.

Continued my swim. Guy at 400m informed I swam all wrong and corrected me. I was sort of grateful. Glad he told me I was lifting my head out of the water, because I didn't know I was, but watching him, knew he wasn't the world's best swimmer. And the fact that I passed him twice, was odd too (I'm not fast at all). Thought I swam another 400m, but looking at the time, it had to be 500m. I waited for D. I don't like watching him swim, I've concluded, because I don't want to be "that guy" telling him how he could be doing it better. Anyway, I kept my mouth shut, but that guy did tell D he was an awful swimmer and that he was going to be last in the swim portion of the Triathlon. Very nice. D is the most relaxed person though, and was just like, ok, whatever.

So we went home, and D made dinner, and I for the 3rd time in 2 weeks worked on fixing our wireless connection. I have it working on one laptop, but cannot get the signal on the other. Really, I'm getting tired of the Earthlink, as every time they upgrade, I have to reset the signal.

What kind of seriously rude person was swimming with you??? Constructive criticism that was NOT.

I admire your ability to swim - I can almost float and the breast stroke to the side of the pool is as good as it gets for me. Ignore the butthead - there's always one. ;-)
