Today, I sat in the hot tub at the Y. We've been members for a year, and taking Char there for lessons for two years before that, but I've never had a chance for a soak. Too many kids, not enough hands. And they're not allowed in :) No stewing the children.
Charlotte is in another round of swimming lessons, starting today, and for once we didn't bring Trystan. (Horribly unfair parents that we are, he's not enrolled, though he normally gets lots of splash time while his sister's in class). It was just us girls, and after Charlotte's 45 minute warm-up swim, during class time I had time on my hands and a cold bathing suit on my butt (among other places).
The hot tub was nice and toasty. My hamstrings had been very tight from a yoga workout Wednesday (on DVD, not the Wii that time) followed by step aerobics Thursday. My legs aren't sore anymore.
Funny, we have a nice, large, jetted tub in our bathroom at home that hasn't been filled in a while (my clothes drying rack has taken up residence there for the winter). I really ought to take more baths. Not to say that I don't bathe, but that I don't soak in a tub nearly as often as I might like. Ahem.
I realized that there are two additional potential firsts down in the pool area: the steam room and the dry sauna. Don't believe I've ever been in either. I'm not entirely sure what the point is (besides warming up or sweating off a little water weight). Any insights?
