Never Leave The Playground

Swim across Spirit Lake 59 years after his first swim in 1957

Swam a mile yesterday    Saturday May 28, 2016.  The last time I swam a mile was in 2011.  That was the year I swam across the largest natural lake in Iowa for the fifth time.  When I swim Spirit Lake on Friday, July 29, 2016 it will be the sixth time. I will be swimming across the lake 59 years almost to the day since my first swim in 1957.  I keep a journal. Something I make a note of almost every entry is how physically active I was today? What did I do physically?  So I have my training schedule from the spring of 2011. I know the day I began to train and how far I went during each training session. My first mile, my first hour-long kick, my first 90 minutes swim etc. When I looked at that earlier schedule I discovered I had started swimming much earlier than I did this year. I found it a bit daunting. I quit looking at it.  I will train to get in as good shape as I am able. I swam an hour yesterday without stopping. I’m on my way to completing the big lake swim.  I swim three days a week and I kick for over an hour three times a week.

That’s it.

Keep moving people. It’s the secret to life.

Warmly, Stephen
