Swimming

I was told by the doctor to give my knee a rest…1 month of rest…NO RUNNING for an entire month.

Went to the neigbourhood pool to try to get some swimming done. And it was a great swim. I think I’ve finally mastered the art of drawing circles with your legs! hahah.

Halfway through the swim when I was just “in the zone” (doing laps), my mind started wandering and I realise how much I miss diving. The absolute tranquility of the ocean, you feel so RELAXED in the deep blue. It’s an entirely different world. And for someone who gets anxious and easily flustered, diving’s really good for my soul. It RELAXES me.

Can’t believe how crazy I was in the past, planning yearly dive trips to all these crazy places, spending ALL my money on one dive trip. Wetsuit, booties, mask, snorkel, fins (minus BCD because it’s just too expensive for a pauper like me).

I’m definitely gonna do one this year. It’s been way too long. I want to see my first whaleshark in 2010.
