Tonight is date night and I’m pumped. Wife and I are going to the rec center to hit the pool for a good workout. We haven’t been able to get to the pool together to workout in a few years. Babysitter is set and I finally get to swim with my “coach.”
She swam in high school so she’s a lot better as far as skills go so that’s nice. She helped me learn how to swim better after she saw me doggy-paddling in my first tri a few years ago. I figured I already knew how to swim so how hard could it be to swim just 350 yards. Wife kept telling me I should practice, but being the stubborn guy that I am, I didn’t listen. She still makes fun of me for that first tri-swim experience. It was ugly.
I haven’t had to doggy-paddle in a triathlon since then. : ) Anyway, this is gonna be a fun date night. We’re gonna race and I’m gonna smoke her! Well, maybe not.
