Expectations

I did a timed mile at Big Corona. My time was 37:33.

WTF? I thought I'd be faster. I'm not sure why, but I did. This brought me down a bit during the farewell bonfire for a fellow TriDiva that is leaving the state. I eventually put it out of my mind and enjoyed the company and the food.

I'm not sure why I can't be happy with any of my swim times. When I started this training I wasn't a swimmer. I'm still not. I was just a bit better than people who didn't know how to swim, now I'm a bit better. The fastest I can do my 25m is still around 30 seconds. That's the same as the pool sessions at the beginning of the spring season! Gah!!!

I think I'm done with this post. I'm Debbie Downer and that's not cool. What I will leave you with is this, I joined the cult called Facebook. Yes I did. And now I have empirical evidence that I, in fact, have friends.

It's hard to focus on what we've accomplished rather than why it's not good enough for us.

Don't get caught up in it! You're swimming, and doing awesome.

You definitely have friends and I am one of them. I count myself lucky, too, to be in your "circle".

Facebook cult - that's funny...

Hang in there with the swimming. You'll get faster. I just can't even imagine swimming a mile at all!

Hey, thanks for linking to my blog! I really enjoy reading yours.
