My mind is probably made up

Fridays and Mondays are walking days, but this last Friday and yesterday, I auditioned substitute pools for when my neighborhood swim center is closed for six weeks for maintenance. Friday was the Snohomish Aquatic Center, and yesterday was the Everett YMCA. I really like both of them, and the YMCA is very tempting, but Snohomish will probably win in the end.

I thought about it while I was treading water in the diving tank at Forest Park this morning. Neither of those pools has a diving tank, so a lot of lap swimming is probably in my future. Snohomish has ten lanes, while the Y only has four, so if I'd like to have a lane to myself, it's much more likely to happen at Snohomish.

Another good reason to go there is that the $60 special swim pass for the Y is a use-it-or-lose-it situation, whereas I'll pay per swim at Snohomish. I much prefer a situation where the swims I pay for can be used any time, just in case.

Anyway, I spent an hour in the pool today again, and it was definitely a lot nicer now that I have music. I spent a little time trying to improve my technique while swimming, but I'm not terribly good at drawing an adequate breath from the side the way swimmers do. Practice practice practice.
