Swimming Makes Me Tired

I swam for a mile at the gym pool today.

Then I just wanted to curl up and go to sleep...but I didn't. I went to my Yoga class.  And while Yoga breathing is supposed to "drive away my thoughts" all it did today was bring thoughts to my brain - like the time Danielle first swam for the Riverside AQuettes and then fell asleep 3 seconds after being in the car.  Or the time I cheered for Dion as he swam the 500 for his high school team and at the time I thought how far that would be to swim. He could swim the 500 in less than 6 minutes. Now that I am a swimmer, it takes me at least 10 minutes to swim a 500.  Deep breathing aside, the thought of Darin swimming up and down the pool playing water polo invades my thoughts.

Tonight Yoga was thought-inducing, not thought-erasing.

I am tired.
