I did it! Swam 650 yards on Saturday AM after I coached my masters group. Felt great. Just long, slow easy, with my swimmers checking it out. Never occurred to me that I would have an audience!
I know the first time in after a long absence can be deceptive, but I have to say that the element that made re-entry so difficult in the past was not there. And that is shortness of breath. Because the breathing was not a struggle I could really think about line and quality of movement. For that I have Power Lung to thank. And my good friend Jason for recommending it to me.
Plans include a swim tonight and one Saturday. Must reign in the impulse to go too far too fast, so tonight’s swim will be 700 yards. If I say it here, I will most probably keep it to just 700.
Nothing like “eau de chlorine”!
