OK, could it get any more beautiful outside?!

One of my favorite things in the world ..... a deep rich blue sky.

So beautiful outside, yet my WOD was the pool.

My gosh, its been over 2 months since I put on the goggles.

Today was swimming 500yds with no arms........SINK......

Well, I did it....not easy lifting my head out of the water and trying to catch my breath. I had to occasionally use my hand under the water to stabilize me so I could breathe.

I did warn the lifeguard that I will look like a drowning victim, so ignore me and go get a sandwich.

I warmed up with 20 lengths with the arms. I think they were shocked to be in the pool too. Shoulder felt ok.....

Roughly 16 minutes to do 500yds with no arms...I know I can get faster and be more relaxed once I get back into the pool more often.

Warmed down with 10 laps, and boy were my legs and glutes happy to have my arms doing most of the work.

Unfortunately, I had to go back to work.

Sitting at my desk; ice on the shoulder, eating my PB & J and catching glances of the deep blue sky.

A pretty good day overall....
