When a big wave knocks me over and holds me underwater, it wouldn’t make much sense for me to get mad at it, right? But really, we operate that way all the time, fighting forces of life that are as unavoidable as the strength and immensity of the ocean.
First time in a long time I’ve been immersed in water. Even with the plantar pain I still need to do some kind of exercise. So, I went swimming. Felt wonderful. Why do I go so long without swimming?
It was a great workout. I even managed to go the length of the pool underwater on a single breath on one of my laps.
I love water. Being in it is not only a great workout, but it’s also like a form of meditation for me. I feel relaxed and destressed after a hard swim.
Now to hunt down something healthy for dinner.
I kicked butt on my hike up a small mountain, had breakfast with three great friends, then headed to the sea. After that, I come home and on the TV is the surf film “Step Into Liquid.” A most excellent day. It reminds me I’m behind on my surf goal. I need to finally go and buy a board soon.
