Nightswimming deserves a quiet night

Thanks for all your well wishes for the Koz.

He is doing better now. As you may recall we recently finished the Riverbend Festival in Chattanooga. Since then, during our walks downtown, I have pulled about 6 discarded chicken bones out of his mouth. We are guessing that he got a piece of one of those bones and picked up a parasite. I knew that dog was sick when he was not eating an had no energy. He seems to be doing much better tonight... we even just romped around the backyard together for a while. I think all of the energy he did not use today was just expelled in a matter of five minutes... have you ever seen a dog jump like a rabbit... I have!

Today was pretty useless at work. I had to go back to the vet mid afternoon to get Koz a second medicine. His vet is near my parent's house so I decided to go over there and swim for a workout. I have no idea what length their pool is (a pretty "standard" home pool)...that being said I do have SOME stats:

6 sets of 16 laps for a total of 96 laps
1 set = 8 free style and 8 breast stroke
Total time was 30 minutes

I felt really good afterward and after staring at the pool at the gym from the elliptical trainer I think that I want to incorporate swimming into my routine...probably good for my knees too!

Take Care

Nightswimming deserves a quiet night
I'm not sure all these people understand
It's not like years ago,
The fear of getting caught,
Of recklessness and water
They cannot see me naked
These things, they go away,
Replaced by everyday (REM)

good job on the swim, molly! its definitely good to cross-train when you're running. i find that my recovery is much easier than when i'm solely running.

i'm glad koz is feeling better!

By all means, pick up the swimming! If nothing else, it'll give your joints a rest.
