today is a day of triumph
Today, I got back in the pool for the first time since late January.
Man, did it feel good.
I know you guys probably couldn’t give less shits, but I’m stoked, so I had to share.
It started with the flu, which evolved into bronchitis, which developed into a nasty case of pleurisy.
Guys, it knocked me on my ass.
So, today, being in the water, that’s something to celebrate.
It’s something to celebrate, and it’s also incredibly frustrating. I’m slow as fuck. My lungs are tired. My catch needs work. My abs are gonna be sore.
Race season is coming, and I have lost my only edge.
Ah, well. There’s next year.
I’m freaking exhausted, but in the very best way.
