Today was less than fun and very humbling. Perhaps if I were one of my fast swimmer friends, it would be different, but I’m not. So, I was the slowest (significantly slower) swimmer in the lane today and constantly felt like I was interrupting the others’ workouts. They were too polite to say so. Or maybe I’m just fussing over it. Or maybe . . . (Sigh) Both are 20-30 years younger than me. However, I have friends my age who could keep up with them. Sadly, I’m not one of them.

Anyway, this is why you see the work out I have. I was trying to stay out of their way.

Tomorrow is another day. Hope your swim is more relaxing than mine was.
