Snow and Swimming?
I’m at home and I'm snowed in, not really snowed in, but just check this out.
Now I know it doesn’t look like much, (this is from my apartment) however it was snowing constantly for about two hours prior to this picture, so I’m not sure what the streets and roadways look like now. Also, living in NYC when it snows like this, it usually means that subways are buses are delayed, so the 20 minutes that it takes you to get from point A to B is now going to take you 45 minutes.
Any who, I had planned to go swimming with a couple of friends today and I still would like to go. But I’m not sure if they are going to go, which makes me weary of going alone. This brings up another problem I have.
I HATE SWIMMING BY MYSELF.
Don’t get me wrong, I love swimming and it’s one of those calming feelings of just being in the water and moving. But just the thought of swimming, in a pool, without knowing anyone is weird and eerie.
I used to feel the same way about the gym and I’ve gotten over that and now I love going to the gym by myself, but this pool thing, I can’t shake. So I’m challenging myself to go at least once alone, no friends, no family, just me before this year is over. Hopefully I can break this cycle I have so I can swim more and anytime I want to without having to wait for someone.
Does anyone have any suggestions for me? I could really use them.
