Went swimming in indoor pool - saw a bunch of people who was dressed as "professional" swimmers and had a trainer although they obviously were grown-ups, even gray- haired som of them. Pondered wether there might be groups for adult swimmers and wouldn´t I like to learn how to crawl... I have never learned I only do breast strokes... but that group of old-timers were far too advanced for me. A pair of them was walking along the pool and I eaves dropped as I was swimming along – the man said that the woman obviously trained a lot, how much? She said 12 hours a week...twelve hours!
In my former life that would have been easy to fit in, riding horses I did probably more than one hour a day. As long as my feet were okay I could always go walking for an hour or two..But today I have a hard time to get the 30 minutes I have set up as a goal in.
But my imagination was triggered – what if I gave my fitness twelve hours a week for a while, where would it bring me?
In the dressingroom afterwards I overheard another woman that was getting ready to go in comment about how hard it was to learn crawling so I asked her if there was a course for newbies...and there was, it started in autumn but there will probably be another one after new year.
Asked in the reception for a person to contact and got a phone number. Phoned the guy who said that the group was full but I could sign up for next year – problem being that most people thought it was so fun that they did not want to leave the group and move on so I might end up trying to learn myself which will be hard...
I will start to save money - it´s 750 swedish crowns for the course (116 USD) and if I manage to hang in there with my health project I will give myself that course as a christmas gift....
