For the second time this week I've gone down to the public pool to swim laps with a friend.
I love it. It is so relaxing and unwinding to swim laps back and forth. I don't know why I'd never gone to check out the public pool before, it is right next to my house, only 1.55E for students and open even on Sundays!
But now I've been and it is fantastic. Both days we swam 1km of laps (each lap being 50m). It reminds me of summers playing in the pool, my sister and I racing, doing laps as fast as possible. It is the first time that I've used an outdoor pool in France and it is great, the pool is heated and each time I pop my head up to breathe I get the crisp refreshness of a December day.
The only trouble is I hate wearing a bathing cap, how annoying! I look like a Smurf with Dumbo ears!
Oh well, a small price to pay for an hour of clearheaded, weightless swimming.
I think I'll stop in tomorrow morning before Xmas Eve festivities (yes, now I do have plans).
