How Do You Eat An Elephant?


Old joke expressing a timeless lesson. Friday is the only day I can get to the pool with my team members. They have stepped up their program and I felt kind of lost today. For a minute I let frustration take over. I was thinking that I won’t be able to catch up and will always be lagging behind in my skills and stamina. Well it is what it is. I thought of the elephant joke and realized that like the elephant my swimming skills will improve one bite at a time. So what can I do on the days that I come to the pool by myself? I can do laps. Several things that I want to do will involve me being able to swim several hundred yards without stopping. So if I do nothing else, I can improve my endurance.

I can work with that. Starting Tuesday I need to swim 300 yds (12 laps) without stopping.  Not committing to a particular stroke, just the distance. I’ll keep your informed.
