I did something today that seems totally outside my usual.
I went for a swim to "just loosen up." This is the role that a short run or a quick spin used to serve, and it's odd to do the same with swimming.
In the pool this morning, it was me and the three elderly people water-walking. I think one was the man who told me, at my last swim before I got hurt, that he liked watching me swim because I looked very smooth in the water. Given that I've been feeling rather less than graceful in the water, I took that as quite the compliment. Actually, it just about made my freaking day.
