The ego is an amazing thing…and I am glad I was able to shove it aside yesterday. I was so anxious about making a fool of myself yesterday while trying to swim without the teacher. As I bobbed around in the water I had to laugh at myself….why do I deem myself so important that I think that the other swimmers care what I am doing…the lifeguard kept looking at me but I had to laugh at that also….you figure it’s pretty boring up there on their perch…everyone swimming along….until I come in and zig zag down my lane…stopping in the middle of a lap gasping for air…I should be glad she paying attention to me so she can save me if I suddenly sink to the bottom! hahaha
By the end of my swim I had actually managed to make it all the way down with out stopping! Sweet! I also came to the realization that I know instantly when I have made a mistake and that’s when I stop…so next week I need to work on recovery without stopping.
Have a good weekend everyone!
