Today's inspiration is brought to you by the lovely woman two lanes over. Anna is an older woman, probably in her late 80's and she swims at the same pool that I do three days a week. Anna is my inspiration today because her daily goal is to swim 300 meters in an hour. For reference 600 meters is my warmup, so for me this is an inspiration because while she takes her time she persists everyday. I love her drive to keep going even though she can't do it quickly.
Anna is my inspiration everyday, but more today because I have a sore back. I think I may have over stressed the muscles, but my low back is screaming. This morning I was frustrated about not being able to swim my regular workout due to the back pain, but then I looked over and saw Anna and thought to myself that if Anna can come here and do this, I can too.
So thanks Anna for being my inspiration.
