Today was an interesting day at the pool. I will just lay out the characters for you.
1. In my favorite lane, which of course I did not get, was snorkeling man. He had on flippers and a snorkel and seriously was moving like he was on a snorkeling trip. He was very slow and refused to look up when he got to the end of the lane. Yep, no sharing with him.
2. In the next lane was "Slappy". This guy is at the pool every day that I am at the pool and he has the oddest stroke I have ever seen. He slaps the water with every stroke. Plus, one of his arms goes does not get in the water straight above his head but almost to the opposite shoulder. He also refuses to look up when he reaches the end of the lane so no sharing with him. That is okay because slapoptamus also can't swim straight!
3. I finally found someone who would pay attention to me and share a lane. He was done very early into my workout but I soon got a new lane partner. She was fine until about 1/2 way through she ran right into me. WHOOPS! No big deal really, I told her it was training for the ironman swim! This started a conversation with a new guy in the second lane. He is getting back into shape and had done an ironman before. He said I looked very comfortable when I swam. That was nice to hear!
4. The final character of the day had to comment on my tan as I was getting ready to leave. Yea, I fake and bake. I know it is bad for me but it makes me feel good. Anyway, he wanted to know where I got my tan and that he needed to get one now. I guess that was okay but felt kind of creepy.
Of course there was also the guy that talks to himself. He is really creepy and I am glad that I was not alone with him! That was my interesting day at the pool. I think I like the days when super speedy chick is there. I would rather feel inferior than creeped out!
Have a great week of workouts all!
