Spring Forward

I love the time change and the promise of longer days.....now if I can just get the weather to cooperate up here, things will be perfect!

I am hoping they fiddled with the chlorine mixture in the pool today because that would provide an explanation for the elephant sitting on my chest during my pool run and shortened swim. I started off with the pool run and right from the start I had trouble breathing- not good! I have heard of chlorine induced asthma so hoping the shortness of breath had something to do with the chlorine in the pool. It got even worse when I tried to swim...made it through 150 yards before I shut it down....couldn't breathe and started feeling claustrophobic...reminded me of my rookie days in triathlon where I immediately buried the needle in the red zone during the swim starts and felt like my wetsuit was strangling me within 100 yards.....not fun!

Had to salvage one good workout for the day so I jumped on the bike trainer at home for a spin...ended up getting in some good intervals in the aero position. I can't wait to unshackle my tri-bike from the trainer and take it out for some "real rides" once the weather cooperates!

Here's looking forward to a good week peeps - keep it rolling!

Personally, I'm not too thrilled about the time change. It seems to make morning workouts a bit more difficult. Anyways, good job hanging in there with the workouts.

I hate those dang elephants that hide in swimming pools. I haven't seen one in awhile, but I know they are there, always lurking.
nice job getting it done!

Hey Mike,
Ouch- time change and morning workouts are a killer. I have a fix- I avoid the morning workout! ;-)
Steven- really strange in the pool yesterday. I checked with the aquatics mgr and he stated that nothing out of the ordinary yesterday so not sure what was affecting me. I felt fine in the pool today.

We actors don't get a lot of chlorine granules for hot tubs till we get "really" famous - but we live and breathe our chlorine granules for hot tubs regardless. chlorine granules for hot tubs
