Showered in the sit down shower room and then decided to partake in the artificial onsen---a jacuzzi hotspring of a bath at one end of the shower area. It's a huge bubbling streaming tub. I suppose about 15 people could fit into it. The heating bill must be massive. then again, so is my gym fee. I hopped in half thinking that after the run it might overheat me. But no, OMG, I melted into the tub. I sat there and closed my eyes as the water (oyu for hot water, people, not mizu) swirled around me like a mini massage. Heaven. Maybe this IS why I pay so much for this damn swimming center. Kick ass workouts, patient and knowledgable trainers, clean and sparkling showers and this damn awesome bath. I sat and then....I realized that at SOME point, I needed to get home to do things (like WRITE about sitting in the bath) before heading back out into Tokyo for dinner.
Basic point: bath after workout. Ichiban.
In other news, Jo rocks.
In other news, Klatcher..well, is almost rocking. I started posting for a new swimming blog, but the publishing bug is still there so I cant actually announce the new blog. yeah, so its going to have to wait until later at some point. but it DOES exist in the land of unpublished internet content. It's up and just waiting for a single little click on a red button. Really.
