Hi my favorite readers. Hoping everyone is enjoying a safe and healthy holiday season. It’s coming up to that time of year that we all need to prepare ourselves for. That time is known as “the resolutionist period.” Every January 1 people decide to start getting in shape. That means, that gym memberships rise, trails become crowded and any other number of fitness-oriented activities grow by leaps and bounds.
I am thinking of the pool. If it’s like last year, it’s going to be difficult to find a lap open to swim comfortably in. The locker room will be packed. People will be standing stark naked while talking on the cell phone. Cell phones will be taken into the shower, with conversations echoing off the stall walls. (You read that correctly.) Circle swimming is going to be the protocol for the next three months. BTW…resolutionists usually start to peter out around the three-month period. Getting, and staying, in shape takes hard work and discipline. It’s not for everyone.
Oh boy…I better buy a thicker swim cap to protect against head bumps. I wonder if helmet-wearing is allowed? Seeing that I like to stay on the positive side of things….I will end this post without saying anything else other than asking for an easier resolutionist period than last year’s.
Find interesting? Kindly share…
