Getting Into The Swim Of Things

I'm trying to get into an exercise routine.  It's hard because swimming is fun but the hours for the pool require you to either be a vampire or an insomniac.

I've been trying to get out and walk more but the rain lately wasn't helping.  I'm sure I could get to a place where I'll go walking, rain or shine, but I'm not quite there yet.

It hasn't helped that this year has been one of the best on record when it comes to videogames.  I was drowning in content and that was BEFORE Persona 5 dropped in early April.  I've also picked up a Switch recently and Zelda is consuming me.  The upside of having so many really great games so early in the year is that it is easier for me to resist the siren's call of the new stuff coming out now.

My stamina wasn't terribly high for the past few months, both due to the surgery and also just general laziness.  I'm getting my feet back under me at work now (it's been crazy!) and I was able to survive almost an hour in the lane swim yesterday without having a coronary.

My current goal is to try to get out to the pool at least twice a week for lane swim.  If I can do that, I think that'll be a big step towards getting my groove back
