All day long today, I looked forward to one thing – getting in the pool tonight. The past couple weeks, I’ve been going to a different pool because I thought it was warmer – it’s set to 80 degrees, with a smaller pool set to 90. I’ve made a habit of forcing myself into the 80 degree pool (easier said than done – 80 sounds warm, but it’s not!), doing my laps, and then heading over to the 90 degree pool for stretching and to warm myself back up a bit.
But late last week, I dipped a toe in the LA Fitness pool, where I used to swim a lot, and I was very pleasantly surprised. The pool seemed to be set at a near-perfect temperature somewhere between 80 and 90. So when I hopped in today, there wasn’t much of a shock. It was sooooo nice. I always look forward to the actual swimming, but I normally dread the moment I jump into the water. Now I can enjoy the entire process. 🙂
