After about 2 years, I’m finally swimming again. I’ve always loved the water. Some people think swimming in a pool is boring, just back and forth, back and forth, but I enjoy this kind of monotony. I get to put my head down and feel the water around me, stretching and using the muscles that seem to hide until you get into a pool. I get to count my laps and just focus on breathing.
When I moved to Camarillo, I was disappointed that there were no outdoor public pools (there is one but you can’t just swim, you have to join their gym). I believe swimming has it’s perks besides exercise- sun, getting a tan and being outdoors. So I wasn’t super motivated to start swimming in an indoor pool. But with my husbands encouragement, we finally found a deal we couldn’t refuse. It may be an indoor pool but since I swim in the mornings, the sun isn’t up anyway and most importantly, I’m swimming again. It’s a wonderful feeling.
