Starting again …

Yesterday (Monday, Dec. 22)

Swam a bit more than 2 km under Coach Kelvin’s direction at the new (to me) St Lawrence Community Recreation Centre (this was only the 4th time I’ve swum there, even though Liz spent her childhood across the street):

- 4 x 200 warm-up (plus an extra 25 because I always jump into the deep end)
- 6 x 3 x 25 working on stroke count; it varied wildly, from 32 (very inefficient) down to 23 or 22 (quite good); weirdly the eastbound lengths were consistently more efficient, often much more so, than the westbound
- 8 x 100 with good effort

No cool-down: they were taking in the lane ropes and I was beat.

So beat that by midafternoon I couldn’t concentrate on work, so I took a taxi home(!), had a p.b.&j. & a bowl of cereal, and started a “lie-down” at 6 p.m. that lasted until 5:44 a.m. this morning.

Today (Tuesday, Dec. 23)

- easy trainer work-out before work—“Cycle 60" easy spin”; I wonder what I’ll watch?
- my first strength work-out in ages
- blood donation (O-negative always appreciated) at Canadian Blood Services’ Toronto centre, which is in the original building of the Hospital for Sick Children at College & Elizabeth streets
- finally a get-together with my dermatologist about the dark spot near where I had cancer seven years ago

Will try to fit in some errands, some self-centered—getting my Polar stuff re-batteried—some not so much—getting Christmas presents?

And I swam 1500 metres.

Remember to order some books for your cousinlets.
