Through most of the winter we’ve had a severe imbalance in the dude to chick ratio at the pool in Santa Maria, heavy on the dudes. I think we’re starting to flip back over to a more even ratio or maybe even skewing slightly more towards the ladies. I don’t mind it either way, I’m just excited when a lot of people show up! I think now that we’re getting closer to March a lot of people are going to start coming out of the woodwork and showing up to practice.

Today’s workout was a decent distance and moderately intense which is leaps and bounds above what I’ve been doing this week. I started out feeling not so great, but about half way in I finally started feeling good again… hopefully I can hang on to that feeling!

although this looks like a close up of a small planet in a turquoise sky, it's really just my head

    I am happy with the dude-to-chick ratio!!! And who was that cute young thing sharing the lane with me last night? I was a a bit faster than him so was settling into the vista-cruiser crawl. Nice.

  2. That’s way it is, people always cut down on activities in the winter, mainly girls from the evidence of your club. Good the ratio is evening its self out though.
