I finally said Fuck It and went to the Natatorium yesterday. It was soooooo awesommmmmmeeeee!!!! I did 20 laps (1 km) where I alternated 5 crawl with 5 back, and finished in 32 minutes. I hadn't done laps since 2008! So I don't really know if it was a good time or not, but I loved every second of it (that I wasn't getting water up my nose). And then I had regular derby practice, which was started with 40 laps in 6 minutes. Twice. I finally got that over all body exhaustion I hadn't gotten at the gym on tuesday. Unfortunately, I was so hopped up on endorphines that I still couldn't sleep.
But I loved it! And I'm so glad that I convinced myself to take the plunge (ha, ha) even though I was on a tight schedule due to practice, couldn't find my Speedo and had to wear a VS tankini (which probably slowed me down every time I had to pull it back into place), and was perpetually moist until I woke up this morning. Love!
