The prompt this week was ‘and then I smiled’
Panting hard, I struggled to pull myself up and out of the pool. I checked the time again, and did a quick calculation. And then I smiled. All that hard work was paying off. I’d done my distance in less than thirty minutes for the first time, and without stopping too.
With luck, and further effort, I’d be able to keep that pace now and build up to double the distance, as long as the pool was empty.
Pleased with myself, I headed to the sauna to get my breathing back to normal and relax before returning to the hectic pace of life.
