!!! Therapy At Its Finest

I used to swim competitively.

Now, almost 30 years later, I’m finding that a good swim workout is not only good for the body.

It’s good for the soul.

It’s my therapy.

Therapy at its finest.

First, gotta have the swim suit.

Then, the goggles. Speedo is my personal favorite.

And finally, a lane. All. To. Myself.

  1. I always wanted to be Peter Pan, the boy who never grows up. I can’t fly, but swimming is the next best thing. It’s harmony and balance. The water is my sky. ~Clayton Jones


  2. I grew up on a lake, swimming all summer…but now I don’t like to put my face in the water and my swimming is occasional floating around. I do like to float, though, and watch the moon on warm summer nights…just a different kind of therapy I guess!

    Good for you Jane! For me, it’s riding my bike. I feel like a kid again, especially going downhill with the wind in my hair. It’s as close as I’m going to get to a fitness regime, and the scenery is lovely right now. Plus, the mosquitoes can’t get me! Hope you always get the lane to yourself. Enjoy.

  4. Oh if only I had a pool…you’re making me so jealous!!

  5. Swimming is my favorite exercise–I wish the swimming pool was closer to me.

  6. Swimming is a wonderful form of exercise, very good for you and not something that punishes the body. Alas, I am a hopeless swimmer. But I am hoping by starting early with my daughter that she will become a good swimmer.

  7. I used to love to swim. As I was growing up we nearly always spent our summers on a lake, generally in Minnesota. I’d spend all day in the water. Now, I’m not even sure if there’s a pool around, but if there is, it’s 30 miles away. And the rivers and streams here are just too cold to swim in, for us more mature folks anyway.

  8. I participated in summer swim team for a few years, before my body changed. The summer I interned in DC (read: hotter than hell), I got back in the pool for the first time since then to swim laps for exercise (no way was I going to try anything else in that heat!). It’s amazing what the body remembers. And how different it feels too. I think I floated quite a bit higher in the water when I was nine … 🙂

  9. Swimming is such great exercise, except for the fact that you have to actually put on a swim suit. 😦

  10. Swimming is my favorite form of exercise. I have to focus on the strokes, focus on breathing right, focus on not hitting the wall. Thanks for a great post, once again.

  11. Walking does it for me…sadly I can’t seem to find any time for it. And this summer’s humidity hasn’t helped.

    So glad it helps you feel better! I think I need a dose of it myself

  12. I LOVE swimming! I wish I could grab some time and just swim my heart out. Swim a couple laps for me!

    I wish I enjoyed swimming like that. Alas, writing does that for me…though I’ve been informed that writing is not an acceptable form of exercise. (I argue that the hoops I jump through for a quiet spot, “a lane. All. To. Myself” is exercise enough. Right?)

    I never swam competitively, but a lane to myself while wearing my TYR swimsuit and Speedo goggles is !!! for me, too!

  15. I’ve always wanted to swim well, but when I get into water and attempt to swim, it looks like I am drowning. Grace isn’t the term that comes to mind. Hope you enjoyed your swim. Love the swimsuit!
