I almost took Coach Duane's advice today.
After all, he said we should do things other than swim. Although he definitely suggested power walking, I took a more leisurely approach. The Rotor family (plus one) came calling, and we went for a walk with their 4 month old Portugese water dog puppies Hawkeye and Hazel. Those aren't my legs. They are legs much younger than mine! We took the route I used to do with Praline, and then Xue. Always turn right out of the house, so the dog is trained never to walk towards Preston Street.
Then I took them on an outdoor tour of the Plant recreation facilities. We peered in at the pool. We walked past the splash pad. But the climbing structures called out to some of us! Then we went and got gelatos. And came back again, of course.
