Swimming in Singapore

I arrived at 6am this morning in Singapore after a 19 hour flight from New York. Checked into the hotel and explored a bit to get the lay of the land of the hotel. I found the hotel's gym and outside pool but it was raining hard. I had some time before I needed to get into the office so I hopped in the pool for a quick swim (I figured I would get wet anyway).

It was a decent swim for me and I seem to be a little faster swimming on this side of the world. Maybe it is just jet lag.

I love swimming in the rain. It feels like a mini massage. Good for you for getting out there. I think I would have gone for a nap.

Yes, sounds like a great experience, if you have to travel.

Enjoy it!

Try to get some good rest and taper your workouts smartly so that when you get back, you aren't feeling too jet lagged and can race strong. Safe travels to you!

Wow, I feel good about myself when I make it to the local pool. You flew to Singapore and swam? Awesome.

I'm impressed. If I'm jet lagged I just flop onto the bed and sleep... you actually hit the pool!
