Day 7 of I'm Running my First Tri in 12 days and I feel a little "out there"

When I got out of bed today I slowly started getting ready to go to the pool to get a swim in. "Slowly" being a key word in that sentence. Yesterday I had done a 20 mile walk with a friend and was certainly feeling it. But I knew ultimately doing some laps in the pool would make my legs feel better. And hello!! the tri is less than a week away, it's time to get in some major activity!

I get to the pool about 15 minutes after it opens and two of the three lanes are already occupied. I start my laps in the empty lane and it's tough today, maybe even tougher than the first day. I push really hard one lap and stop at the end of the lap to catch my breathe. The guy using the lane next to me is doing the same, and I'm debating about striking up a conversation with him. You know, since I'm a swimming newbie and can use all the help I can get. I kind of glance his way and he has kind of a strange look on his face as he glances my direction. I decide maybe he isn't a talker and I adjust my goggles, catch my breathe, etc.

He starts swimming again and just as he does I glance down to see that my boobs have almost completely came out of my swimsuit. I mean, we are talking nipples and all.

I bought a new swimsuit a few hours later.

LOL-not funny but funny at the same time. What kind of swimsuit did you get and where? I'm in search of one myself.

Oh, no! At least you're keeping your training interesting. ;)

Oh no, it's funny. I actually went to the Nike Outlet and got a high neck swimsuit. I also found a really great one online at DicksSportinggoods. It's also Nike and has shorts so I can just jump out of the water and go. I'll let you know what I think of them.

lol, I got a great laugh out of that. How awkward, good thing you didn't start up that conversation!

Haha! Totally mortifying and completely hilarious! I have a Nike suit that I got at Dicks. Thanks for making me smile this morning ;)

Yeah, I totally laughed at that. Maybe it's good that he didn't strike up a conversation. What would that have meant!?
