This may not seem like the best strategy in the world, but I have been craving this for a while, and I really needed to get into the pool for the first time. It would be a bad strategy to buy myself a fancied-up coffee every time I went to swim, but I think it was a good way to get myself there. I got myself a schedule (defeating excuse #1), figured out that no one else bothers with a lock either (excuse #2), and figured out that I still could swim without feeling completely incompetent (excuse #3). I am going to try to make the swim part of my Monday morning routine. I do need a swim cap, though (excuse #4), because even with my best attempts to contain it in a ponytail and swim without one, my hair was getting into my face and making it hard for me to breathe. My shoulders felt pretty good, too, so maybe my rotator cuff injury (excuse #5) has gotten better from all the yoga and Pilates.
The most interesting thing? The mocha tasted good but it wasn't the spectacular treat I remembered. I doubt I'll want another anytime soon.
