Well, after six months of fatherhood with little to no exercise, my blood pressure’s been hovering in the 150/100 range and I’m up to 191 lbs. as of yesterday. So today was my first day at the gym, swimming.

Despite the near total sedentary lifestyle, I did 10 laps in under 15 minutes with only two 1 minute breaks in a 25 yrd. (Olympic short length) pool. 350m or .21 mile.  Not too shabby for just jumping back in.
