Summer Swimming--delightful!


It has been so hot here! I have been looking forward to getting back in the pool and doing laps again. I am definitely a summertime swimmer. It is so buoying for the spirit as well as the body in these sultry summer days. There is also something compelling about the rhythm of doing laps-- back and forth -- across the pool. It is a respite for the mind, allowing it to be rejuvenated. I often get lost in thought, suddenly having to remember which lap I am on!

I have also found that swimming is better for my healing leg. I can sustain the movement longer because it is not putting direct pressure on my leg. It seems that every other exercise I do does.

Swimming makes me an optimist!
