A Swimmer Again?
I know many of my swimmers have a parent or a grandparent that were competitive swimmers. Former swimmers are the gateway for many into this crazy world of weekend meets, morning practices and green hair. But competitive swimming does not have to end at high school or college. Especially if you are looking for a way after Covid to return to a fitness routine. Scrounge up some of your kids extra goggles, pull on that old skimpy suit, and jump into your nearest community center lap lane. And while you don't have to join a masters team, it might make it not just easier to commit to swimming but a hell of a lot more fun! Because- if I am being honest- those first few swims might be grueling but once your body adjusts it will seem just like old times. Without a doubt you will find yourself wondering why you ever stopped.
