4150 & Stoked

14 Oct

This morning I swam 4150. My longest swim ever. In my life. I swam consistent and steady. I didn’t panic and I didn’t need to resort to breast stroke. I actually felt relaxed. I am sorta still in shock about this. I didn’t sleep very well because I was dreading this swim. I am very happy with today’s workout. If I can be that relaxed on race day I will be happy. I wasn’t fast, but that’s ok. I felt good. I felt like I didn’t want to stop. As you can see in the photo above, it was DARK this morning when we started. But we had the most beautiful sunrise ever today. The sky was painted pinks and oranges and light blues. I kept seeing it every other breath and thinking to myself.. I am lucky. I am lucky to live where I live. I am lucky to have the means to swim when I want. I am lucky to be doing what I am doing with my friend in the lane next to me. I don’t mean to get all mushy, but when you swim or workout or do anything by yourself all the time or for that long, you start to think about a lot. I do this often. Sometimes I am hard on myself, sometimes I am mad, but today was just really good.
