Holiday

I had Monday off of work and it was awesome. I wish I had more days like that! I skipped Master's so I could sleep in and have a leisurely breakfast while I read a book. Then I headed to the pool and did the workout by myself - I know the benefits of swimming with other's, particularly our Master's team but when the choice was getting up at 5:15 and getting up whenever when I'll be swimming with everyone every other time, well, the decision was a no-brainer for me :)

Plus, I got to swim in the warm pool! They have two lap swimming pools at TAC, a competition olympic sized one that is set at 'competition temperature' (for us non-swimming folks, that means cold), and a 25 yard pool that is a few degrees warmer. A few degrees makes a big difference! We hardly ever get to swim in that pool for Master's.

For lunch, Marty and I went into downtown Cary and ate at the Soda Fountain inside Ashworth Drugstore. This drugstore has been around for 50 years and they have a cute little Soda Fountain counter and a couple of booths. Typical Soda Fountain food - hot dogs, sandwiches, milkshakes - I'm a sucker for places like these. I had a grilled cheese and chocolate shake and Marty had a tuna melt AND a hot dog.
In the afternoon Marty, Tassie and I all went for a 5 mile run. I love days like these.

Love it! and actually...when you HAVE TO SWIM in the warm (HOT YWCA) pool you appreciate swimming in the cold one:) But i am sure the grass is always greener.
