I was up before the crack of dawn to go swimming.
I'd joined the Kroc Center last night, an amazing facility with 3 pools (one rec., one olympic, one therapy), an ice skating rink, gym, fitness center, theatre, library, classrooms, and God knows what else.
In Jan the 99 buck registration fee was waived, so it was just 3 months in advance (at 25 bucks a month) and then you can go month to month after that. The widow Kroc (Ray Kroc had founded McDonald's corp) donated heavy coin to get it built. The rec & olympic pools are outdoors, but when I went in the pool though the air temp was in the low sixties, the water temp was a pleasant 84. Nice endorphin rush, and still had time to have a nice breakfast afterwards and get to work on time. Of course I felt like crashing totally at 10. So now I have no excuse for not getting enough exercise. Though I don't think I'll be going rock climbing anytime before Hell freezes over. I know my limits!
