I swam.

Doggehs like to swim too, Mommeh.
It wasn't fast, and it wasn't pretty, but I got in the water and splashed around for a mile yesterday.

I just haven't been able to summon the mental energy to get to the pool until now but yesterday was my day. I was (kind of) looking forward to going all day, reminding myself how great it would be to get back in the water.

I almost lost my nerve when every lane was taken but a few minutes and some dangling legs later I had half a lap in which to try not to drown. It was slow, of course, but it started coming back to me by 1000 meters or so.

This was the first time I've swum since December. Before that, the last time I swam was August. Wow. I have a lot of work to do if I want to get any proficiency back.

But I was right — it was good to get back in the water.
