I’m sitting at the computer naked. Quite frankly it’s a tad warm, 80 degrees F outside. I need to turn on the AC, I guess. Or not. I hit a workout goal today: to exercise 50 times in 70 days for the sake of consistency. Every negative thought I could think of ran through my brain. “Nausea will make you want to stop swimming. “You’ll get those calf cramps.” “They will close the pool because of a thunderstorm.” .
But I persevered. I stopped after 100 meters, rested a bit, restarted the stopwatch, then swam another 2050 meters. I took my shower, headed home.
OK the naked part. Here’s the simple answer. It feels good.
