I took this picture at my pool Tuesday morning. I needed it for my Instagram Teamrunnerd photo of the day contest. I always like the photo word each day thingies on blogs but they always seem like too much work. Instagram makes it so easy! I haven't been doing Instagram very long but I am loving it. This contest of sorts has made it more fun. This was for the word: easy. At first I wondered what to do, then when I was swimming I came up with it. I had left my phone in the car but I went back in with it to get this picture. I wrote: It is EASY to train in a pool compared to a weed infested pond or lake where you don't know what lies beneath. It is fun to see what each person comes up with for the word. Tomorrow's word is moment and I do have a plan for that one. If you are on Instagram follow me at andyjha.
I seem to have a bit of a swimming theme. Sharing during morning meeting has a theme and you have a day you share. It isn't show and tell but props are allowed and encouraged. The current theme is sports and last year I took in biking stuff for this. I thought about taking in my wet suit and talking about swimming but then decided I would take my swim caps. When I tell the kids I got them at races maybe my more materialistic kids will decide they too want to race! I already took my medals in last year. My kid who is on the swim team went nuts looking at these!
I seem to be back at my regular workouts pretty much. These days I am at the gym. Not that exciting but not awful either. I just go and do it. Trying not to gripe about the small things. Couple things going on around me that are putting things into perspective. I know I'll forget and complain at work but really.......I'm healthy, my family is healthy, I have enough to eat and life is quite good.
