The Man From Atlantis

[ #2193 ]

Well hardly. But I have been swimming.

I went on Monday and it was torture. If I ever wanted to prove to myself that I'm not as fit as I used to be, then swimming would be a great way to do it. I used to swim regularly. I used to be good at it. But for some reason I stopped over five years ago.

And it really showed. I really struggled to do 20 lengths. And it hurt. The next day I was in pain all over. Which, I guess, means it's doing some good. Right?

But I persevered and went back again today. And it seemed easier. Which is a demonstration of either my body's ability to rebuilt itself of my mind's ability to delude itself.

I know which one my money's on.

  • I love swimming, but the word, to me, means "floating on your back and watching the ceiling move past you". I never understood why my mother recommended it for exercise.

    Well, my SOTF was a swimmer in HS competition, and when she got in the water, naturally, goaded me into attempting lengths. I could always beat her on one length's worth of speed, but I couldn't do another one for fifteen minutes or so.

    I have the cardiovascular efficiency of a dead racoon.
