School's back in session, neener neener

I haven't been to the pool in a couple of months because it's just too mobbed with kids during the summer. I tried to share, I really did, but I just got so sick of dodging balls and having water splashed in my face. You'd think it'd be easy to have my own space since I tread water in one spot and take a corner if I can, but it's not. No problem. I can stay away a couple of months out of the year. Especially since walking's what I really want to be doing.

I was pretty sore after spending more than four hours in the car yesterday, so today being the first day of school was really great timing. I did 20 minutes of yoga this morning and swam 30 minutes this afternoon. It was so quiet and empty, too. Just lovely.

One thing that did not survive today's swim is a cheapie watch/pedometer I bought recently. I was unfamiliar with IP ratings and thought it was waterproof, but reading the listing again, I see that it's definitely not. It might be fine after sitting in a bag or rice for a while, but if it's not, I really don't care. I'm mostly curious to wear it when walking sometime to see how it compares to the step count from the app I use. I'd like to buy an Apple watch, but I won't until they release one that works with Android.

The rest of the day has been pretty relaxing. Shows are piling up on the DVR that I can't watch until Garrett gets back.
Steve's keeping me company while I watch Ice Castles.
