    Swimming! :D
    50 laps in the 25 meter pool. It was busy! Lots of people in the slow lanes. I had to wait my turn quite a bit, so I'm guessing I could do this faster if I had the chance. ;)

      I'm glad you noticed, Larry. I disapprove of that myself.

      @Larry - i think most people need to ride to trails. heck even the cyclists DRIVE to a parking lot area and THEN do their champlain loop! That time I managed to do that loop myself I biked to the park first and THEN do that loop. Also depends on how accessible the trails are - for me getting to the park is really easy and safe because it's off the mixed use bike path. So there isn't an excuse not to do it! (except for the whole time thing...it eats up half the work day!).

      I never learned how to drive a car...i was too terrified when i was younger and then circumstances just meant i didn't need one (living downtown in ottawa for university and then downtown montreal and then downtown toronto). so...no car. i should learn though. main motivation now is because i want to take a road trip with P and L to Gaspe. :)

      Ah. Well, having a skill is always good. I was against it in environmental terms but decided to get the licence and just drive only for necessity. I try to mix pleasure trips with business so that it minimizes wasteful driving.

      Great job! I'm proud of your determination...I might just have to restart swimming (again) myself. Do something that terrifies you and you'll get stronger!

      You're really doing OK, it is exhausting doing it every day though. My dad used to be on a national water polo team and he was telling me how to swim many years ago, which I ignored until I went back in the pool last year. He said, inhale under your arm at the upstroke and exhale in the water, clearing your nose if necessary. His other advice is too advanced for your current stage.

      I've been exhaling through the nose, that was a game changer yesterday. i'll try for inhale timed with armpit next time. and yes, after 2 days of swimming in a row i am really tired and i didn't swim all that far!
