I really love swimming. I love the feel of water on my body and how relaxed being in the water makes me feel. I use my swimming time to unwind from the day and to think things over. I even construct blog posts in my head whilst making my way up and down the pool.
What I don’t enjoy about swimming is getting cramps. Every session, I get a cramp somewhere, usually in my feet. Most of the time I can stretch it out and keep on swimming, but unfortunately that was not the case today. My left foot cramped up and refused to stop. I tried all my tricks, but nothing work. Thus my workout was cut short at 25 laps (1.25km). My body has obviously gotten used to doing more than 30 laps, cause 25 laps didn’t even feel like a workout. I didn’t have that glorious ‘I have worked hard’ feeling that my body gets after doing 35 laps. It was a real letdown. Obviously, I have become addicted to the endorphins. Still 25 laps is better than nothing.
