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.
