But I decided to push Friday's swim to Saturday because my folks were still here and I wanted as much time as I could get with them. Plus the workout included a 1000y time trial that required some focus. Then Saturday I was so annoyed with myself for having postponed it, and having to do it after a scheduled run, that I felt very childishly grumpy. So I put on my happiest swim suit - the new pink flamingo one - and headed to the pool with the kids.
I knocked it out under some heavy clouds that threatened to boom at any moment and end my swim early. Then like anytime I do something a bit begrudgingly, it went well and I felt SO much better afterward.
Surely the new pink flamingo suit helped. Spencer snapped this picture not long after....see...no evidence of grumpiness! Swimoutlet.com had a big sale recently and I picked up two suits, including this one, for $15 each. It's simply impossible to be grumpy swimming in pink flamingos.

Incidentally, Grant's Karate group did a demo at our town's summer festival. I'm super proud of him and put a short clip of some of his moves and his board breaking up on the family blog.
