Finding my Inner Fish

I’m not quitting running or anything crazy like that. I’m just not running the marathon. I’m switching things up a bit. I’ve been talking about and thinking about getting back into the pool for quite some time. I finally just went ahead and registered for masters swimming for the fall. I signed up through our rec sports and decided to do it two days a week. They have a nice option where you can pick which two days you want to do. They will be my non-running days.

I love the pool. I love the smell. I love being in the water. I love it all. I used to get myself to the pool. Then I quit the gym and had no access to a pool (not that I was using it anyways). Turns out masters swimming is much more economical than joining a gym. Plus I get to swim with other people. Other fish. Other people who like to be in the water.

I don’t know what will come out of this. I don’t know what I want from this. I just need to do something other than run. I won’t stop running, I am just adding two days in the pool. Maybe this will be my way back to triathlon. Maybe this will just be a break that I need. Maybe this is just going back to where I started. And now I can’t wait to get in the pool.

Of course my next step is to find my suit, cap and goggles that have been in hibernation for well over a year. Details.
