There are a few ways in which my daily swimming has changed my relationship to getting into the water. One of them is my willingness—eagerness—to jump in whatever the weather.
I woke up this morning to gray, wet skies and felt a little thrill that I would get to swim in the rain today. Rain at all is a wonder to this Californian who has been cycling in and out of drought years for most of her life. In the rare instances when it does rain, we are warned to stay out of the bay because of the polluting run-off.
Anyway, I was happy to swim in the rain today. It was an Adult Swim day and I managed to finish the 2,000-meter workout in the allotted time! (Ok, I may have started early)
When I got home I jumped back in to swim a little more.
