Swimming

The thermometer  in my car read "9" this morning as I drove to the pool before work. While Michigan is capable of being much colder in the middle of January, this was not the most motivational of meteorological news when it comes to swimming. It's rather difficult to drive up the desire to swim when your breath is crystallizing into tiny ice flakes on your steering wheel. But, I managed to make it to the pool and swim for half an hour. I had read in beginnertriathlete.com about the advantage of counting strokes per lap and trying to become more efficient in the pool than powerful. So, I dutifully counted my strokes. About 21 per length of pool. Now to try to make myself more efficient :)
