Swimming

I went swimming for the first time in literally years today. Boy it was a great workout. I can't remember the last time I felt that exhausted. Perhaps Santa Fe and the high altitude workouts. I mean, ever since then I've been trying to run harder but swimming was definitely a tough workout. And I didn't even swim very long or very far.
At least once a week now, I'm going to head to the pool so I can at least improve my endurance in the water.
I believe strongly that will transfer to better running speeds and better strength.

Actually I've never heard of the McGarrigles before. What do they sound like?

Have you heard of Rufus Wainright? He's the son of Louden Wainright III and Kate McGarrigle. The McGarrigles are two sisters who write fabulous songs and sing in high voices, sometimes haunting sometimes funny. They're from Canada. They are in with all the greats, such as Emmylou Harris. You'll just have to hear them!
