Swim!

Way back last year I bought a groupon for 10 swims at a pool not far from my office. I waited till the last minute to redeem it, which meant I squeezed in a swim during the winter break. But I haven't been back.

Given that we are moving out of Bothell in a couple of months, well, I have to get swimming!

I think the reason I have been hesitant to go swimming is that I hate sharing a lane. I get spooked about it. Don't know why. I just do.

But today I arrived at 8:30 to find a nearly empty pool. I picked up a kick board and pull buoy and settled in.

I swam laps, alternating between freestyle, kicking, and pulling, and felt pretty good throughout. Swam for 25 minutes, and then hopped out, showered, and headed to work.

I won't be able to swim for a few weeks after the surgery, so I am going to try and get one or two more swims before then.
