Monday, July 30: Today began with a four-mile tempo run of fartleks. I felt pretty good at the start, but began to suffer in the middle. Somewhere toward the end, I began to regroup and finished fairly strong. Not too bad for an old girl.
The best part of the day was spent at Nana's pool--with Nana, courtesy of Mother Nature who sent a lightning bolt through the township building on Sunday. This meant she couldn't work, so she was home. We talked quite a bit, and I got to spend some quality time with Grace and Kendall in the pool. Grace impressed me with her ability to swim underwater for quite some time. She's fearless. Tonight she performed fairly well on an online Curious George game that required visual perception. I was impressed with her ability. I wasn't impressed with her decision to hold her bladder from 2:30 until 7:30. That's five hours of cajoling someone to tinkle on the toilet. How tiring!
