Donned my speedo today for 80 lengths of the 24 Hour Fitness pool. Seriously.

PM: Walked a couple miles. No noticeable improvement in my foot. I rarely get injured, but when I do it's never something that gets better in a week or two. 

I'll just keep plugging away with the cross training.

No comment on the speedo?

You know I was trolling.

I think she meant it sounded miserable for the lifeguard who had to watch you the whole time

You were trolling in a speedo?

Just trolling for comments on my blog.

Were you the guy wearing the bright pink one that read 'JUICY' on the back? If so, where can I purchase one?

From Rob Murphy on Mon, Apr 23, 2012 at 21:05:16 from

Sorry Acorn that wasn't me - and I wouldn't admit it if it was.

You could probably google "JUICY SPEEDOS" and find one on line.

Just trying to be helpful.

I agree that injuries by definition must last longer than a couple of weeks. That said, I hope you aren't injured. If you are, maybe you will begin to like swimming, become a triathlete and start shaving your legs. There is a bright side to everything.
