It just so happens that the UT pool is heated, so that even in Dec and Jan the Recreational swim is outdoors. This is true except in inclement weather that all swimming is done outdoors. So the discussion at the office that the pool water would be warm like bath water.

Yesterday was the hottest day (I think) of the summer and so I was going swimming… well, the water was just perfect. It was actually a little chilly, enough to be refreshing, but not cold. So, I cranked out about 960 meters in the pool in a decent time. I believe that my technique is improving and thus making me swim faster, plus my muscles are increasing in stamina as well. So that makes me happy.

I'd love to do one of the Sprint Triathlons here this summer, but with the new baby on the way, I am not sure if that is going to happen at all. But, I will continue to swim none the less.

Today, it looks like it will be another chapter in The Adventures of Beer Boy and Math Boy!
