Does Zoot make a good racing sandal?
It is becoming more and more apparent that water doesn't like Schmitty - be it ocean, lake or Oak Park FFC lap pool. In fact, outside of a shower, there is no water situation that I can think of in recent memory where I thought to myself "boy howdy, today is a good day to get wet." Heck, I don't even like flume rides anymore. Seriously, what part of walking around in wet undies is fun?
To that end I've been thinking...I dread a third of all my workouts. I spend untold amounts of time convincing myself to go in the first place and then a second amount convincing myself to actually get into the water when I'm there. And I have a riddle for you - What has two thumbs and goes to the gym, changes into his trunks, goes out to the pool deck then turns around gets showered, dressed, and heads home? THIS GUY!
I do have some unfinished triathlon business to attend to over this season and next. Then I am seriously thinking about switching over instead to be a 100% happy and very competitive (hopefully) duathlon age grouper. I wonder if that will be freeing or will feel like I'm giving up?
