I was beginning to think that my love affair with swimming was over and I was starting to feel that I was just plodding away at the front crawl.
My first lap today was a good one. I felt so in synch doing the back crawl. I felt as if I was gliding through the water and I enjoyed the power in my legs as they propelled me along.
Even if I've forgotten how to do the sidestroke on my left side and my breastroke is bobless, I still enjoy the pool. Even this picture makes me feel peaceful.
I swam 21 laps in about an hour and toyed with the idea of staying in the pool but tasks were calling my name.
