This morning marked a major milestone for me in the pool. Two actually.
I've always had a fear of water and could not learn to swim growing up. I could tread water forever as an adult, but could not put my face in the water or swim much at all. Going one length of the pool, 25 meters, was very, very hard.
Despite this, I joined a Master Swim program last September and learned how to swim.
Today, I swam 2000 meters, for the first time ever.
And, at the encouragement of my coach, went up on the 3 meter diving board, frightened as I was creeping to the end of that thing, and dove. Well, it was somewhere between a dive and a belly flop.
And now I am celebrating with a breakfast devoid of good nutrition, toasted crumpets with butter.
And later today, I will take a nap.
