SwimmingPosted: September 1, 2010
So thanks to me being an idiot and running too far, too fast in my vibrams, I have a bit of a food injury.
Thankfully my gym membership is expiring and I got a free month pass for the $$$$ gym in town. They have a pool!
I have never been a good lap swimmer. I was always on my summer swim team, but I was the kid that got the “most improved” award. I just could not get it down. This being said, I was a little worried to attack the pool today. I also said I would never ever want to take up swimming again…
I was scared that everyone would be watching me and I really had no idea what I was doing. I read up on Greens for Good before heading out and just took a breath.
My first 100 was hard! I wasn’t breathing correctly and I think I was just trying to get over the initial shock.
Once I got going I actually did pretty well. I stopped about ever 100 to get some water and managed to do a 1200. I could have gone longer, but it was getting crowded and I didn’t want to push it.
I think the main reason I was able to get things down was that there was no pressure. I wasn’t trying to win a race or beat anyone in any other lane. I was there for myself and no one else, and I really enjoyed it!
