Endorphins!

I finally got my fix. Oh yes, I got my fix!

After about two weeks off (not counting last Sunday's 1/4 mile swim), going back at it felt AMAZING! After being pretty much shut down for that long, nothing can quite describe how pumped up I am right now, so I'm not even going to try.

Since I've been a bad blogger lately, here's a summary:
  • Finals are DONE!
  • Exercises for my knee are a go
  • Swimming works again
  • I don't have a care in the world
  • I'M GOING TO HAWAII IN SIX DAYS!
I thought I could make a full post about how pumped I am right now, but nope, not quite. Just know that I am. This thing is turning around.

Life is good.

Wooohoooo!!!! That's awesome, you definitely deserve the endorphins. Enjoy your trip to Hawaii (lucky!) I am sure it will be a welcomed change of pace. Swim, man, swim!

Hi Doug

I am totally pumped for you!! The excitement in this last post is pretty much jumping right off the monitor and that is pretty awesome. Hawaii is going to be amazing and I am really looking forward to reading about your trip. That is one place I haven't been to and is on my short list.

Best of luck with the training and just life in general.
