Mental Games


I felt almost comfortable swimming today. Fifty yards (2 laps), rest, fifty more rest etc. If I push to seventy-five yards, that insane chatter comes back. Not enough breath, too tired, where the heck is the end of the pool?  I’ve tried singing like Tony suggested but somewhere along the way I get distracted. I wonder what people concentrate on when they are swimming long distances. Crossing the English Channel, participating in the seven-day  120 mile  8 Bridges swim in the Hudson River! Wow. Any long distance swimmers out there let me know
