A little New Year's swim

I'm still planning on doing a sprint triathlon next July—either the whole thing or just the swimming leg—so I decided to apply my "Use it (or lose it)" philosophy to my gym's pool. Pretty sure I haven't set foot in there since May, and I don't think I've used the gym's locker rooms in that time either, because I didn't have the slightest clue what my lock's combination was. The "Use it (or lose it)" theme seems to dictate that I should now either figure that out or toss the lock and get a new one, so I guess I'll work on it. (I've since remembered that it had a lot of 3's…)

Swimming itself went okay, except that I did a number of yards I would not have considered worth getting out of bed for in my competitive swimming days. But that's fine. The point of the New Year's theme is that I have a ridiculous number of advantages in my life—good health and a gym membership being just two of them—that I need to put to work and stop taking for granted. And it really is SO nice to have a decent lap pool less than a mile from my house.
