Today is Groundhog Day, in case you weren’t aware.
I’ve been waiting anxiously for the weather here to warm up to the point that it also warms the pools in the Valley. Lot’s of pools in Phoenix are heated throughout the winter, but personally I hate swimming in warm water. I want to jump in to the cool water on a hot summer day, then get out and air dry without catching pneumonia, thank you very much.
I can’t wait to start swimming again. To really focus on my strength, endurance, and longevity in the water. It’s the second step I need to complete on my journey towards a triathlon. Up until my senior year of High School, I was on the swim team practically year round. We would easily swim 5 miles during each practice – and it barely even phased me. This go around, it’s gonna be a whole new rodeo.
So I’m bummed that the Groundhog saw his shadow. There will be 6 more weeks of winter like weather – or so the story goes.
