Never Ceases to Amaze Me....

How good it feels to go swimming!

Yesterday, I finally went and got a membership for the pool.

This morning, I walked the dogs earlier than usual, and then headed up to the pool and had my first swim in a very, very, very long time.

As soon as I got into the water, I felt an absolute peacefulness come over me. I took it all in for a moment or two, and then I started my swimming. I was short for time, so I only got in 15 minutes of doing laps, but every single second of those 15 minutes was sheer bliss.

I had the pool to myself. The lifeguard sat at his desk and kept himself busy while I paddled away. While I swam, I considered going to the little shop in the mall where I work, and buying another swim suit so I can go back for a swim after work. (I have two swimsuits at the moment.) To be honest, if I didn't have to go home to let the dogs out, I would go to the pool twice a day, every day, before and after work.

I was so excited about making it to the pool that I forgot to do a bit a stretching before I started, and I somehow managed to pull something in the front of my left shoulder. I am not going to let that stop me. I'm going to go get a massage at lunch time, to have the knot worked out, so I can go for another morning swim tomorrow.

Life is good!!!

    It's nice having the pool to yourself. Our Y had students from the middle school using it during the day. It was a lot of noise and the coach was always yelling at them. Glad you had a peaceful swim. I hope your shoulder gets better. The doctor told me today I will always have trouble with my shoulder and may need an injection for the pain. Take care and have a great time swimming.
