it’s harsh… I hate getting up that early.  But I did and the swim went well.  I worked on my swim drills that our instructor gave us.  And after a half hour my abs were hurting.  So I guess that’s a good thing.  I’m working muscles that haven’t been worked in a long time.  I was going to bike tonight but the cats talked me out of it and made me sit down and do some knitting.  Right now I’m working on a top secret project.  But if anyone wants to know, it’s coming along swimmingly (pardon the pun).
