Normally, on Sunday, I swim at another facility, but that pool is closed for a private event. 🙁 If I’d swam at my regular Sunday facility, I wouldn’t have a broken toe. That’s right, I have a broken toe. How? It didn’t happen during swimming, but rather during the shower. Apparently, one of the shower knobs pops off. It’s quite heavy, as attested to by my toe. The one it landed on just so. Just so, that is, so it could break that toe. Who knew this was such a hazardous sport?
On the upside, I saw my swim buddy Abby, and we pushed each other. Or I pushed her. Actually, we pushed each other. One of the fun parts of swimming with others is pushing each other to swim faster/harder. Luckily, this was pre-broken toe.
Also, Coach Gina took some video of me swimming (I requested it). What does it tell me? I have work to do on my stroke. LOL
