The View from South of the Potomac River: Are Your Resolutions on the Fence ~ Time to Take the Plunge!

Are Your Resolutions on the Fence ~ Time to Take the Plunge!

Being 22 days into the New Year, with a layer of ice coating lawns across Arlington County, the opportunity to work on that resolution to get/stay in shape may seem a bit far fetched.  Swimming is a great way to get your physical activity in, but with freezing temparutures who other than a polar bear would want to take the plunge now?

Well, it's time to put your excuses aside as the opening of the brand new Yorktown Aquatic Center on January 15th in North Arlington makes this exercise option available to all Arlington residents.  The new state of the art facility features an 8 lane x 25 yard competition pool with adjacent diving well and separate instructional pool, as well as seating for 175 spectators.  The school swimming instructional program uses the pool during the school days, but the pool are open to the community year round during early morning, mid-day, evening hours and weekends.

Dive In to the Arlington Real Estate market 

The pool is located at 5200 Yorktown Blvd at Yorktown High School and can be accessed through entrance #3.  For information on the pool and schedules, you can use the link below or call 703-228-8754.

AJ - What a great Localism post!  Now you have me thinking where Albuquerque's indoor pool nearest me is located.... What a great stress reliever that would be after a day that has been much like a crazy Monday to me!

John - Thanks... it has a way of relieving stress and getting in my physical activity ( in a way that doesn't hurt my knees).  Get out to the pool and dive right in!

AJ, that's funny. They actually have a Polar Bear Plunge on January 1st in the lake here! It's the end of the month and I'm still on track so far!

Connie - There was a huge polar bear plunge to benefit Special Olympics last month in the Chesapeake Bay, with "Super Plungers" jumping in every hour for 24 straight hours.

That is way beyond me...

AJ - It has been in the 80s in Florida. No place for a Polar Bear.

I enjoyed reading your post. :D

Thanks Patty - maybe we can make a regional adjustment for you down in Florida... do you prefer a Mermaid Plunge (potentially sexist) or Dolphin Plunge?
