It was long distance swim at the club again today and this time I wasn’t the only swimmer. Yesterday’s rain had cooled the lake a couple of degrees and it felt good getting in; refreshing, invigorating, and like I wanted to swim hard.
It was sunny and breezy and the lake was full of energy. Waves splashed and jostled me, not quite as intense as the bay back home, but very fun.
On the way back I felt like I had to work extra hard, fighting against a current that was taking me in the wrong direction. But apparently, the other swimmers were getting pulled in the opposite direction, so maybe it was all in my head. In any case, it was a fun swim.
