Getting back into it
So my last "real" swim was 4 years ago just before my twin daughters were born, and while that will hopefully pay dividends in the form of crew in a few more years , the last 4 years have not seen a lot of swimming.
Covid certainly didn't help with my local pool being closed down, but even pre-pandemic I was stuck in the mindset that a workout wasn't a workout unless it was 5000+ yards, and a mile was just a good warmup.
Well I am older now, and while not wiser, my local pool has re-opened and I have discovered the joy of getting wet for as long as I can sneak out of work, and my shoulders are telling me that you know, a mile is actually a decent work out so shut up and just get in the pool.
Not a lot of point to this post, but now that I am back in the water I find that I an inspired to be reading MSF again, and even if I am not doing long swims right now, I at least still have 27 years left to do a Dieter
