Pool Lane Challenge

A week after my first COVID vaccination shot, I joined local gym to swim. First shock, I haven’t paid for gym membership for long time because I train and taught classes at that gym. The second part, you have to call to reserve a lane. I’m use to just going when ever to swim. Now because of COVID, you cannot share a lane which is why you have to call to reserve a lane. As more people get vaccinated, more are going back to the gym to swim. Living in New England to cold to swim in lake now. Swam in March 2 times and 2 times in April so far. Swimming is aquatic which you need to swim at least 2-3 times a week to make any gains. To get me in the habitat, I schedule in my Google calendar to beep me on my iPhone to call the gym to reserve pool lane for the next day. I miss calling Sunday but did call call Monday morning which there was 1 lane open a 12 pm. Yup the rest of the day all the pool lanes were reserved. If you snooze you loose! If you are a swimmer or triathlete use your Google calendar to remind you to schedule your swim time lane. Be safe and healthy!
