first water

Day 2 of my new swimming routine. Or, I should say, my revived swimming routine. The UCSB pool was kinda crowded today. Odd because Tuesday morning it was almost empty. Maybe everyone’s doing the Monday/Wednesday/Friday thing. Anyways, I felt a little better today. Probably I’ll see improvements daily for the first couple of months. I should. I frickin‘ suck right now. For instance, here’s what I did:

  • 10 x 50 free @ 2:00
  • 1 x 50 free kick w/ kickboard
  • 1 x 50 breast kick w/ kickboard
  • 1 x 50 breaststroke

That’s a total 650 yards. Sad. And yes, that’s 50s on the two minute. I remember doing 50 50s on the :50 in high school. If I could see me now. I’d kick my own ass. Whatever, I almost died this year. And I’m going to keep using that excuse for the rest of the year. Maybe longer. That’s what you get to do when you almost die. Sort of like a reward to compensate for all the misery you endured. What? You didn’t almost almost die this year? You better get out there and crank, dude. No excuses.
