Well as the new year approaches there is a steady stream of new people entering the pool. Its getting more crowded as the days go by and I assume that there will be a big jump in attendance when the new year hits. This morning was a record setting day since I’ve been swimming, in that every lane had at least 3 people. This makes for a pretty crowded and loud pool. Lots of splashing and moving about.
The life guards decided it was pertinent to place markers at the head of each lane so that people knew what the approximate swim speed was. Low and behold my lane was marked with medium. I’m not considered slow anymore!
However, I still have a long way to go to be considered fast. The triathletes in the lane next to me pass me so effortlessly its almost embarassing. But, I’ve only been doing this for a couple months now so how can I complain.
