There should be no question in your mind as to whether or not I am competitive.
If there is...I AM!!!
Paul and I took vacation time this week to spend time together before the kids head back to school. We are laying low and having much needed R and R. We have some day trips planned and a few over night adventures scheduled.
Having no schedule or lists has been the best part.
Yesterday, we spent the entire day at the pool. The weather was great. The rec center we selected has both an indoor and an outdoor pool. This allowed us a break from the UV for awhile.
The indoor pool has a several options for entertainment. It's great.
One of the options is a "fitness pool." It's not anywhere near the distance of a lap pool.
Maddy challenged me to an IM. An IM requires the swimmer to swim all four strokes-butterfly, backstroke, breast stroke and freestyle-in that order, one at a time.
Maddy, having pity on me, said I could do freestyle twice and avoid the butterfly.
Well, given my competitive nature, this set me off a bit. I didn't let on, but I did take her up on the offer to avoid the fly.
I'm competitive, but I'm not an idiot!
How hard could it be? It's a "fitness pool." I have been running almost everyday. I knew I could take her.
Yeah not so much. She kicked my butt...She finished a full lap ahead of me...a lap and a half if you count the fact that I cheated and didn't swim to the end of the pool on any of my laps.
That girl can move!
