It is amazing the difference that 89.04 feet make when you are waiting for the wall to show up. I have realized something - I need my flip turns! I forgot how hard it is to make the transition between the 2 types of pools. But I am going to persevere through this and build my endurance so that each lap won't feel like an eternity.
The only downside is that every once in a while I have flashbacks to winter breaks in Puerto Rico. Yeah, that may sound nice, but my fellow Allegheny College swimmers understand the negative connotation from that statement. The other downside is the tan lines and the uneven tan. I am noticeably darker on my back in comparison to my front and therefore have the dreaded Speedo tan lines that will take forever to get rid of. Not to mention the fact that I have a tan line around my face due to my cap. Oh well!
