Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 116: Another Swimming Post

Why do different pools feel so different when I'm swimming?! 

This morning, I walked along the path next to Clear Creek behind The Golden Hotel (Colorado) to the Golden Community Center for a lap swim workout.  The Community Center is a beautiful building, and the wall of windows seen in this image bring lots of natural light into the lap pool area:

My swim this morning felt/was slow and labored compared to how I usually feel at the CAC.  I'd like to offer up the high altitude and different climate as reasons for this experience, but I'm not entirely sure how justifiable an explanation that is!

Sometimes our bodies don't feel the groove like we want them to feel. Just keep on swimmin'!
