ten more

I swam ten lengths again today. When I got to the gym I saw so few cars in the lot that I thought I would not have any trouble getting a lane. But I did. Apparently most of those cars were swimmers'. Or so it seemed. There was one person in each lane and usually a lane can hold two, but most of the swimmers were swimming "wide". I went into the last one and asked the woman in it if I could share and she said she'd rather I didn't. She suggested I wait until one of the other swimmers got out, five or ten minutes by her estimate. My lunch hour was ticking away.

I went into a lane a few down from hers and asked the guy there and he said sure. He was the only one in the group who was a good swimmer, and we didn't have any trouble sharing for the short time I was in there. Then someone left a lane and I grabbed that one.

My arms don't feel it this time. Same number of lengths, resting in between, as last week. Interesting. Maybe my form is improving a little, and maybe the little time I spent with weights during the week helped too. Now I want to dig out the coaching book on swimming I have. A book, yes. Better than nothing. I want help with breathing mainly right now.
