Water Jogging

Today Amy and I went to the YMCA and ran in the water. It took me back to my high school days when the cross country team would go to the local YMCA and run in the water on our recovery days. Those were simpler times when I didn't have much more than school and running to be concerned about.

I forgot to mention that Amy CLAIMED that she couldn't swim. Well that is a lie! I was expecting her to be floundering around in the water or at least afraid to go in the deep in. All the other people that I know that can't swim don't go in the deep end! I think I'm going to have to have a talk with Amy about self-doubt.....

She did wonderfully and I had a wonderful time at the pool. It was a nice break from the pounding my body takes running on the road. I think I will have to add this into my regular training schedule.
