I returned to the pool at my local Y after the state opened things up.
I could not be more grateful.

I think if you look at the athletes who do water sports, specifically open water sports, you see a different sort of limberness.

Mark Healy, Laird, Paige Alms, Kimi Werner, these folks are connected to something.

I love doing 60 minutes of laps in the pool. It clears my head.

I'm about to head to the pool myself here in a few minutes. It's good exercise that is easy on my knees and ankles.

But its difficult for a person which is new to this exercise. I am focusing on my routine, and i hope it will help me much in getting stamina for this exercise.

As a young man, I grew up in rural Connecticut, on a pair of water reservoirs. We generally went swimming in the smaller one. I learned to swim to the other side (the short way) , about 1/10 of a mile, to meet up with the occasional skinny dipping girls.

It certainly does not seem like 1/10th of a mile was very far, but it took forever and often the girls would run away... So it was freestyle about half way across as fast as I could, then turn over and lie on my back and do a tired backstroke the rest of the way.

Then as I grew up, friends and I would challenge each other to race from one end to the other. About 1.5 miles. OMG that was hard, even for a fit teen. Just getting to the halfway point was a chore. My memories of swimming as a young man were very positive!!!

College days in Daytona Beach were filled with ocean swimming. Wonderful beyond belief.

Fast forward to old man status, and I almost drowned in the ocean.

Most of our family youngsters learned to swim, canoe & kayak in this pond situated about a 10 or 12 minute walk from our BOL.

Many also learned to fly fish in it.

Itís dangerous to be right, when the government is wrong. The price of freedom can be seen at your local VA hospital.
