Yes, you read that right. I always love swimming and it’s not the kind where you paddle around the pool for a couple minutes and then lay out. We are talking about mind numbingly boring lap swimming...back and forth, back and forth...and I love it.
See, I grew up playing basketball and the other ball sports, played basketball through college and never cared about swimming. It was a sport with zero visibility at my high school and college. But every now and then when it comes the time to go back to my father’s village, I have never missed my chance to swim in the beach which was very near to my grandmother’s house.
I could generally say that swimming is one of the things I would prefer doing to kill the time when I was bored. Most of my friends don’t even know that swimming is my hobby because I have this strange behavior when it comes to swimming, I love to swim alone. So currently, as a results of being bored of doing nothing, I have gone back to be doing something that I have not done for a long time; swimming workouts.
They are a similar feeling to being able to push a big gear on the bike and feeling strong doing it. Every now and then I am feeling really strong in the water and make the big push. Love it. Love this feeling of being fit and strong in the water. Some people hate swimming and I don’t understand it.
