How much do I love the orange toenail polish with the yellow fins?
After a lot of back-and-forth emails with Stacia, and testing out a couple different pair of my pool buddy, Nancy's fins, I ended up ordering the Finis Zoomer fins in gold, which is their new, softer fin. Nancy's were the blue Zoomers, and these are actually more comfortable than hers, which I thought were pretty dang comfy! I've worn them Monday and Tuesday for about half the length of my workout - I hear you are supposed to work your way into wearing them. So far, I really like them!
Also, Baby J is working out just great - it's really easy to use. The only thing I had to change up after my first day was to do my laps in sets of tens or twenties so I would know that I just needed to do whatever stroke to an easy number to remember. It's hard to describe - heck, I had to write it down to keep it straight (and we've once again established that numbers are NOT my thing, lol!):
So I do all this, and it takes me about an hour and a half. I'm not fast, but I am steady. And when I'm done, I'm tired! As this is Shelley Swimming™, I count every lap - up and back. The pool is either 25 meters or yards long (I really have no idea), so 100 laps equals 2,500 whatevers, and I'm pretty happy with that. Also pretty tired. Did I mention that already?
