I love the people that swim at my pool. I went to the pool yesterday to get in a leisurely 3000 yards. Maybe some 400 repeats, some pulls, IM's, fun stuff like that. After getting in a 600 warm up and a 400 pull, I decided to do 5X100's on the 1:45. First 100 IM, 2nd free, 3rd IM and so on. It felt great. Then rocked out another 400 pull. And then some of the older men who WIN freaking masters events jump in the lane next to me. "Hey Chloe, what are you doing today? Any intervals? Can we join?" What am I going to say? No? "Of course! I'm about to start 5X100 free on the 1:30". Done. "Hey Chloe, what do you want to do next? IM's?" Sure! I'm totally game. I forget how awesome intervals are when you are actually doing them with someone else! 5X100 IM's on the 2:00. Loved every single one of the 100's. I could have stayed another hour swimming with these guys...but I had to be at the most dreaded place in the world. Well, for me. Walmart.
Yes, I had to go to Walmart. I was on my last pair of contacts - which I ripped the day before. So I had no choice. Thankfully the eye place is right when you come in the door. So I was in and out before I had to deal with the Walmart crowd plus the spring breakers. Phew. You know you're Walmart is awesome when it has an AIRBRUSH station right in the front. Anyway, the parking lot was a whole other program. No - I do not want to meet you at LaVela. No, you don't know me from your chem class in Auburn. But I guess I should take it as a compliment that I can still pass as a collage student :)
Jason and I have both been very busy this week. Me with work, training, and babysitting. Jason with trips. Cobia have started to run (Cobia = some of the best tasting fish ever!) - so he's been booked all week and running trips back to back. Needless to say, we've both been going from 5am to about 10pm almost every night this week. So last night, we went to our favorite hole in the wall mexican place for chicken tacos and to enjoy some down time!
Cobia we caught last year....YUM!!!
