The swim gods had it in for me today.
I got up at 0645 and was at the pool at 0700. Patricia has work soon so my swim was going to be short anyway. I was getting ready when I noticed the pool looked funny. I got in and started swimming, it was CLOUDY...yuck. Not normally a big deal but it just is nasty sometimes.
I got to about 100 and adjusted my goggles...SNAP....band snapped in half. Do I have a backup pair...of course not!
I did have my humongo tri goggles. I put them on but it felt like a brick was on my face. I don't notice them or care in the GSL because I have about 2000 other messages being sent to my brain at the same time and "my goggles are big" does not take priority! My stroke soon went to hell and I could not focus on anything. I got to the end and did some drill work against the wall for 10 minutes then swam some more.
I got to about 500 and this sweeping feeling came over me to just go. I'm not counting this as me quitting before I should have. I felt no guilt at ALL when I got out. It just wasn't meant to be today.
I'm going to put together all the sets of goggles I have this weekend so I'll be better prepared.
