Hit the pool. Chatty Kath was in one lap lane and this guy was in the other. The latter offered to share but I told him that I would be okay in the larger area of the pool since there was only one kid taking lessons. He said If they get to jumping off the diving board, the offer still stands. A very cool offer.
The kid finished with his lesson at 8:00 p.m. I usually swim for an hour but when the kid is there, I continue to swim so that I don't have to wait on the shower. Twenty laps turned into 25. The next to last person exited the pool when I was at about the 30 lap point.
Even though I felt guilty for keeping the three lifeguards, I continued to swim until I hit 33 laps. It's hard to stop swimming when I can see a mile at the end of the tunnel.
I took a quick shower and when I sat in my car, it was 8:40 p.m. -- still twenty minutes until the pool officially closed. Think that I'll save my longer swim sessions for the weekend because I can't stand the guilty of being the last one out of the pool.
