Welcome back Gut, sounds like a great visit.
I've been meaning to tell you that I don't know how you do those early morning swims. I started swimming this week and when I get out of the pool, I feel like wet spagetti and want to go take a nap immediately. Swimming has always done this to me. But when I go for a brisk walk, I always feel so energized afterwards. But my doctor wants me to swim as its more of a whole body workout. But you swim before work. Me, I'd have to crawl back in bed for an hour nap before I could do anything else.
