Swimming Fort Bragg?

This morning I included some lap swimming in my walk!!  What a beautiful facility and almost nobody there at this time of morning.  Maybe it is a madhouse in the afternoon after school but at 6:30AM it is quiet and beautiful.  Brand new lockers, showers, everything.  There was even a bathroom scale near the showers.  It read 160 when I got on it.  Opps!  Either it is ten pounds light or mine is ten pounds heavy!!  Hmmm.

Anyway, I slipped into the lap pool and ripped off four laps!  Humble beginning I know but hey, I was afraid I wouldn't be able to do even one lap before I started.  I'm pretty pleased with myself. The "crawl" came back just like riding a bicycle!  I didn't do much, I wanted to ease into it but I think I did just enough for my first go. Sitting here writing this blog I feel it in my shoulders. Like I told the receptionist when I walked out the door. "I'll be back!"
