Ok, Ok... so it's getting easier

So this is what swimming 3 times a week feels like!

It's been just a couple of weeks since I started the swim program that the coach at the clinic recommended for me. A combination of endurance swims and drills has me swimming 1150 meters three times a week.

The first time I got in the pool to do this- I damn well near drown. I was rushing and wroking to hard that 500M into my swim I didn't think I would make it to the end of the pool. But- I continued to get up in the mornings (blah) and swim on Saturdays, and the last couple of swims have been great!! I've slowed down, concentrated more on my technique rather than speed, and I'm finding that at the end of my 1150 meters, I still have energy left and I've even found myself doing a few extra lengths for good measure.

Thank god swimming has gotten easier with practice. I guess it's like anything, being persistant pays off. The only way to get through anything tough- either personal, work or sport is as simple somedays as -just keep going. I know its usually easier said than done. But something my mother once told me rings in my ears anytime I'm stuggling with something- when I say "I can't do it- it's hard!" she says "well of course it's hard... if it was easy- everyone would do it". And it's so true.

I'm off to Vancouver for three whole weeks for work. I'm leaving tomorrow afternoon. I'm really looking forward to it. I hear it's soooo nice out there still and I can finally get in a few good runs - OUTSIDE! Not to mention that the office has a gym that I'm planning on taking full advantage of.

Hope all is well with you and whatever your doing.

Wow. Swimming is hard. Swimming is really hard when your not used to swimming all the time. Hopefully swimming will get easier. It will be a long summer if it doesn't.
