11:30am - Today I am working from home, so I took a quick break to jump on the treadmill.  Normally I would want to run outside, but I just got two new pairs of running shoes so I want to check them out (and break them in) inside first, in case I need to send them back.  I also have blisters on both heels from the race on Sunday, so I wanted to see how they felt.  With bandaids and socks on, they were fine.

Was getting restless at the office, so I went out for a walk.

Thursday - August 23

Tonight I had a dinner date with my two daughters.  Mom had a dinner meeting, so I picked the girls up from preschool and then took them out for pizza.  After getting them home and in bed, I plopped down on the couch and before I knew it I was asleep.  I woke up around midnight and crawled into bed, but could not get back to sleep.  Cry

Update: At dinner, I mentioned to the girls (they're 5 years old) that I was asked to be a swimming teacher.  They both thought that it was a great idea.  After a few minutes, one of them asked me if I was asked to be a teacher before or after I did my swimming.  When I told her that they asked me after I swam, she said "they must have asked you because they saw that you were a great swimmer".  Boy, do I love my kids!  Smile

9:30pm - After my DW got home from her run I went up to the "Y" for lap swimming.  After I was done, I received an interesting inquiry.  While I was swimming the adult lessons were going on (which I took several years ago) and while the class was practicing one of their drills the instructor came over and asked if I would consider helping to teach the class starting next session.  At first I politely declined since I barely get to the pool as it is, but on the way home I started giving it more thought.  Maybe after this weekend is over I'll contact the aquatic director to find out more.
