I have started swimming again. I’m using the pool at my uncle’s house, as I’ve talked about before. It’s not a huge pool, but it’s the perfect size for doing laps.
In four days, I have done one hundred laps. That’s about 1,000 more than I’ve done in the past year.
I love to swim. I love to feel the relaxing waters, cool as they may be, as I exercise. I have a treadmill at home. I hate it. I hate it because it’s so hot when I walk on it that I feel like I’m going to pass out. With the outside temperatures being in the upper 90s and low 100s lately, me walking on the treadmill is a joke. So, I’m taking full advantage of the pool while I have the opportunity.
It feels great to have 100 laps down. I will be back in the pool tomorrow, doing my 25 laps to get that good feeling going. I have decided to go after work, then come home and take a shower. It is simply so relaxing that I am like mush when I get home. I also don’t have to take a shower in the mornings, which is good and saves me time.
So, 100 down. 1,000,000 to go, I’m sure. I hope this not only calms my spirit but also lets me sleep more soundly and improves my physique.
