Excuse me for beating my own drum but....
This morning I swam half a mile!!! Seventeen laps!! Well, just short of half a mile but still, for an old fart, I'm stoked!
I started swimming just after Christmas last year and completed two laps that day. I was whipped!
So I continued at two laps per day for a week. The next week I increased to three laps.
Then four, and then five. Each week adding one lap. Swimming at 6:45 AM five days a week.
I'm only doing the crawl. Just back and forth without flip-turns. Recently I began working on being more efficient through the water; head down, longer strokes with a bit of a coast between strokes. I decreased my stroke count for twenty-five yards from fourteen to nine!
Just like walking. I used to think a two mile walk was huge. Now I walk six or seven miles and don't give it a thought.
All I had to do was get my mind right, get up and Get OUT. Amazing!!
