      Sounds very cool! I'd have been more comfortable with a headlamp, also.

      I really cracked up "I had no preconceived idea.... but apparently I'm a wee bit afraid of being in a dark cave!" LOL... Sounds like a neat adventure. Wear a hard hat with a lamp next time though.

      @Kelly- Coach T always has me do 12 repeats, so I just do that many even when I'm not in a training cycle...anything else feels weird ;) ...I think 12 is his lucky number.

      Nice pace! You won't have a problem getting it all back, the break was good to recharge the "mental batteries" and make you really want to train again. I'm glad you're back!

      @colleen - i'm guessing (read: i know) it was all part of Coach T's master plan. He's an evil genius. ;)

    canal loop in the wind and rain.
    nothing fancy, just meandering around. dialed it down to half marathon goal pace in the last half mile, just to make myself do it.
    glutton for punishment. ;)

      Nice work, Barb! weird about the aquafit... I've never paid attention to things like that so I have no idea what they do. I suppose maybe bouncing around might be what it's about -- building up atrophied legs with the assist of all the floaty fat perhaps.

      Patty, I know a number of people who couldn't swim, who learned in their 40s and 50s. You'll learn how. In fact it's a good idea to get on with it, as it could save your life.

      @Marina - nope. just wanted to re-learn how to swim. :) @Patty- i almost drowned when i was a kid, but my parents forced me to learn when i was in grade 5. but i still have a healthy fear of water. ;) Pierre is right though, you can still learn. Actually, you'll probably learn faster because you're older. :)

      Nice recovery, Barb! Warmish here too-- this time of year it goes back and forth between warm and cool every few days.

      I find the pool hard to go to also... it's because you have to go through the rigamarole of getting changed for it and walk around in the pool area before you finally can get in the water and get going. Our pool area is FREEZING COLD before you get in the water, it's very nasty, so that's always the first thing I think of when I think of swimming... anyway, good meander.

      Yep, the pool IS an effort, it really is. Preparation, swimming gear, alla that. Not as easing as grabbing your shoes or a bike and just hitting the pavement.
