Disconcerting News

Friday, February 18, 2011

So ... I went for my swim today! On my way out I heard another swimmer asking how many laps in a mile. She gave him a different answer then the lifeguard I asked several weeks ago. On my way out, I thought that I would just get the right answer (assuming the answer I had was correct). To my dismay my answer was wrong! That 2 weeks I though I was closing in on 2 miles. Guess what, I was closing on on 1 mile! That's right, the lifeguard I asked told me 35 laps (one length of the pool) was a lap, when in fact 70 laps (one length) is a mile. I'm consistently swimming 60 laps so my goal is back to 1 mile in an hour. Drats!!! Just to make sure, I verified the length of the pool (25 yards) and came home, got on the internet (through a Sparks Search of course) and did the math my self. Yup, gonna have to step up my game!

On a positive note, I signed up for the Sparks virtual 5K today. It will be my first in more than 30 years. Start training using the sparks training guide tomorrow. More about that later. emoticon
