Hiking 19:28  1.64 km (11:52 / km)
Stratton Brook SP.
Fastest pace yet and longest distance. I felt like I could have gone further, but why shame myself by overdoing it? The gracilis was already sore from morning yard work but the striding wasn’t aggravating it noticeably.
Swimming 30:00 
Hiking 15:44  1.21 km (13:00 / km)
Chubb. Went better than expected after having done some yard work this morning.
Took S over to Topsmead SF in Litchfield to combine beautiful views with a slow walk upto and around the mansion on this very windy but gorgeous day. Well worth the time and drive notwithstanding the current high gasoline prices.
While the pace was slow to accommodate S’s impaired mobility, I was blessed with no hip issues in the effort, even after a morning of more mulch distribution.
Swimming 30:00 
Finished with chatting quite awhile at the pool steps with a woman who also used to swim competitively. A discussion about smoothness of stroke led to discovering all sorts of common interests and experiences involving education. Learned that her daughter is a new member of the U.S. House of Representatives from N.C. who proposed the Act, recently enacted, imposing a Conflicts of Interest disclosure requirement on the justices of the the US Supreme Court.
My timely selection this morning of an old Lapland (Finland) tee shirt triggered another conversation in the men's locker room about current events in the Baltic.
For the lonely experience of doing laps in the pool, the venue has been a rich source of social contact.
