Life is always a complicated balancing act. One of the things which has eluded me after becoming a dad is finding time for fitness.
All throughout my 20’s and early 30’s, I used to swim religiously, just about every day of the year. So when HRM told me about a swimming pool near her mother’s house I was truly overjoyed at the prospect of getting back into it.
This pool offers only one 50 minute slot daily for open swimming - the rest is blocked off for lessons. Last week I headed out for the first time and I was running a bit late. When I started changing in the locker room, I was devastated to realize that in my haste to leave home I had grabbed HRM’s navy blue bikini swim suit instead of my own (navy blue) trunks.
I was about to call it quits but instead slipped them on. To my amazement, they were a pretty decent fit. So I swam in them and never looked back. In fact, now I understand why Norma Kamali charges $250 for a swimsuit to Arena’s $30!
