1500 yards of swimming made it clear I need to do some core strengthening stuff, too, 'cause it made my back ache. I know, swimming's supposed to be no-impact so it's GOOD for your back, but it doesn't work that way for me. So I'll have to see about pilates or yoga or *something*.
The weekend was very nice. Trundled up to Dublin, slept half of the train trip (it's official; trains, unlike any other moving vehicle, put me to sleep), worked on Chance #4 a bit, and hung out with the family in Blackrock, which was very nice. Train trip back home was v. early, but actually that turned out pretty well. I worked on Chance some more, then read a manuscript I'd been asked to do a cover quote on, and between those I got to Cork without falling asleep, and made it home in time to see Ted briefly before he had to go to work.
I don't seem to have enough brain to say anything else right now. Back to work.
