12 aspirations -{}- aspire with me

Dude...I wrote about this in my LJ, but it needed to be put over here. Kick Ass. When I started at an eighth of a ton, I can't imagine making a lap without having a nice long gasping session.

And boo-yah Josh.

And let me tell you...even now, even with flippers...if M climbed on my back and demanded a ride, she'd be the only one breathing for 25 meters. I hope we start in the deep end, otherwise, I'll have to make sure the thermonuclearly hot lifeguard is on duty, and not The Human Sweater.

The important this is, has been, and always will be, that you're getting into the pool. And yeah, I turn 19 sometimes...I ran even with M for something like 12 laps, asked her what she was on, and she *disappeared*, ruining my view and motivation. ahem.

And, in a fully manly manner, to someone trying to walk the path I did...I'm proud of you, man. And when you blow through 200, Marine Bruce will be back. granted, his knees and back have retired, but still...

Oh, and swim caps are for guys who are actively losing their hair, or who need combovers, which they can't do underwater. I'm bald. Screw 'em

Hahaha. Big back-slapping man hugs are accepted! Dude, I'm still sore from the pool and from getting back on the weights after 2.5 weeks off. However, I've expanded my routine to 20k now instead of 14/15k. I've started thinking that Tue/Thur would be a good pool habit to start for me and the boys. I lift M/W/F mornings and do the treadmill/elliptical, so it would round out my week.

Now that kick turn or flip turn or whatever it's called? That's my first priority to learn once I get to the point of actually turning rather than clinging to the wall and sucking air.
