So I was a good girl and went swimming. And it was fine. I was in no danger of drowning. In fact, I perked up considerably. So that's good. It looks like I'm going to be pacing myself at 12 minutes for the 500m swim in the race next week -- which makes sense, since I paced myself at 13 minutes last year, and that was a little too slow. So that's good.
The only problem is that now I'm all perky and awake and stuff. And I'm supposed to be going to bed early tonight to make up for not having slept properly last night.
