Stand up and finish what you started, a Bob Harperism, seldom enters my mind anymore while swimming. Now it’s let it be effortless or effortless effort – something that Gloria likes to say in yoga class.
Front crawl is now the method I use to get in my first 10 laps and it really does feel like the path of least resistance – of the strokes that I know anyway. When I take the time to streamline and breathe into the area of my armpit, I really do feel in synch and submarine-ish.
I’m totally digging swimming and yoga right now so I’m just going to ride that wave for a while. I did go by the climbing gym before swimming so that I don’t completely forget my footwork et al…and because I hadn’t seen Patti for a minute.
Where are you going after this?, Patti asked. That woman knows me well…
