Next time, I will have trained longer than 6 weeks.
I never did find that lifeguard to thank him.
My left calf has completely recovered. All it needed was some rest and nutrition. And a heating pad. It feels great.
I’ve been swimming twice this week: on Monday I felt really tired. Wednesday’s swim felt normal again.
My knee looked pretty gross initially. It has scabbed over nicely and doesn’t even itch.
I was mad at myself for a little while for botching the swim, but I actually learned from the experience, and I know there will be a next time. I feel so much better about it now.
Wow, people. It really was a gorgeous day.
