On Sunday, after I got back from my run and laid around for a while I decided to clean out the pool and go for a swim. I'm still trying to perfect my breathing in the pool in prep for my first ever triathlon in the fall. I'm starting to get pretty good at not sucking water into my noise. Success!!
The one issue is that I am having a hard time finding a pair of goggles that I think really fit. They either let water in (took those back) or feel like they are sucking my eyeballs out of my head (current pair). On Sunday however, for some reason I decided to try them on upside down. SUCCESS! They fit well and weren't TOO bad at sucking my eyeballs out.
I screwed around in the pool for about an hour, got out, messed around in the yard for another 90 minutes, and then showered. When I looked into the mirror after getting out of the shower I thought that it looked like I hadn't slept in weeks! I don't think the picture I took does it justice, but there were HUGE bags under my eyes that are not normally there. You'd think that I was trying to give myself a hickey and instead got the vacuum stuck on my eyeball.
Careful not to look too close.
If you look too long at my soul, you'll start to see the Easter Bunny playing with Santa Clause
I assume that some level of face puckering is normal, but after an hour or so I want to look like my normal
opiate induced well rested self! Is this normal or should I go looking for yet another pair of better fitting goggles?
