I met Nat at 6:00 am today for a swim in Channhassen's lovely Lake Ann.
Nat's toe has mostly recovered -- she still has a scab where her nail used to be, but no pain and no scariness, so she is back in the training saddle.
It was a little tough to get up at 5:00 am since it was still dark out. Thank heavens for the timer on our coffee maker.
I can just about stumble out of bed, head in to the kitchen and have that sip of coffee to help convince me it is NOT time to get back under the covers.
We met in the parking lot near the beach just as the raindrops started to fall.
We tried to "convince" each other that we should alter our plans, but then the reality that Pigman 1/2 Iron is less than 30 days away.
There was not threat of thunder or lightening, so we trotted down to the beach, put on our wetsuits and went swimming.
It was a good workout for us. We took the same route I did with our coach -- Greg -- a few weeks back. It took us about 3/4 across the lake and back, for a total of about 40 - 45 mintues.
Then it was home, kiss the just-waking-up Hubby, shower, feed the cats, and zip to work.
I'm not sure that the workday will be as fun as the swim...
