Here are some pics from the pool. The temps have been consistently over 100 this week, we hit 105 one day. After the workout we've found a dip in the pool is quite refreshing. I finally got up the nerve to go off the big platform. The highest one is roped off, so the second is as high as we go I'm now trying to get my dive down so I can go head first. I've done it okay on the low board, but the second is much higher. I also want to try a back flip, but there is plenty of time for that. I've been getting back into running some lately. I'm back up to doing around 5 miles for my long day. It is a little strange, I usually wait to run until it cools down to about 85, which is around 900PM. All of the buildings and street lamps are turned off in order to deter the bad guys from shooting at us, so it is incredibly dark. They aren't very good shots so it doesn't matter much. I keep to the roads away from the wire so it is as safe as being in the gym on the treadmill. I was thinking the other night how much I miss running around Lake Zorinsky at home. Jason and I went quite a bit, and having someone to talk to makes a big difference. The great thing about running around a lake is that you get a few miles around, there is no quitting early. Here, you have to do laps so if you get tired or bored you just quit. And no headphones because they are a safety hazard. Also the air here is really dusty so that makes another challenge. I may train for a 1/2 marathon while I'm here. We'll see how it goes and how motivated I am. Mongolian night is cancelled tomorrow, so I'm pretty bummed about that. At least we got advance notice so we won't be too upset.
