Let's talk more about swimming. (When did this become a swimming blog???)
Two weeks ago I sucked it up buttercup and got up at stupid o-clock to try out the local masters swim team. To my surprise the place was packed. People! It's 5:30 in the morning!!! Everyone was welcoming. I told a few people my usual swim times and I put myself into the very.last.lane. Yep, you think you're good until you swim with real swimmers. Then you suck. The workout was hard but I was keeping up and felt pretty good about things.
I went back two days later and swam with the boys. It felt harder. Maybe I was more tired. Maybe it was because I didn't eat breakfast.
Last week I just couldn't get up for the first swim, but did go later in the week. This time we did a descending set with the very last 100 as fast as we could go. And you know what? I cut nearly 10 seconds off my best 100 times. All this swimming? It's working.
This morning I got up again. This time I led my lane through some of the sets. I was hitting the send-offs and I was doing well. Guess I am going to have to keep going. Right now I am loving swimming.
