Workout, Day 7

I hit my first goal. I swam 500 metres.
Now, Jeff might not think that’s much, but I think it’s significant for someone who learned to swim at nearly 15, has never taken a swimming class, and started working out again a week ago.
Here’s what I did:
1. Front crawl: 250 m
2. Breast stroke: 250 m
I even reduced my breaks. About half of my laps were free of breaks, and when I did break it was just a few seconds — long enough to take my pulse.
My next goal is to get to 1 km.

Support independent journalism

By Kim Siever

I live in Lethbridge with my spouse and 4 of our 6 children. I’m a writer, focusing on political news, social issues, and the occasional poem. My politics are radically left.

I’m also dichotomally Mormon. And I’m a functional vegetarian: I have a blog post about that somewhere around here. My pronouns are he/him, and I’m queer.
