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:
- I had put back on some of my weight and the thought of a swimsuit wasn't good.
- The cold water and that feeling when you first jump in.
- 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............
