Day after day, I have been putting my swim gear out and planning to go to the pool early the following morning. Day after day, I have pulled the covers up and not gone. It has been 5weeks since I last swam. I worked so hard last year to learn how to swim but I was procrastinating going back to the pool.

The other day I received an email from Coach Steve--Master's Swim on Tues Nov 4 @ 530am. The time to get back in the water was here. Best to do it now befor class begins.

As I drove to the gym, the reasons for staying away came back to me:

  1. I had put back on some of my weight and the thought of a swimsuit wasn't good.
  2. The cold water and that feeling when you first jump in.
  3. Swimming is very unnatural to me.

When I got to the gym, I experienced all of the above. I did survive and completed 1,000 of drills.

Tomorrow , I am meeting Snips for a 6 miler. It will be the first time to chat since her marathon. I am so anxious to talk to her. Hopefully we can fit it all in.

Waddling to make dinner............

Good luck getting back to it. That first plunge is the hardest.
