100 Laps in 4 Days

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.
