Two things have been making me rethink my cool attitude towards swimming as a fitness activity.
First, and most obvious, is my knee. No more running for me ever. That’s it. I’m done. My life as a runner is over.
Second, more positively, I’m in the South Pacific, in French Polynesia to be more specific, and I’m loving the water. Yes, there’s beautiful fish and stingrays and sharks and dolphins. But even aside all the beautiful marine life I love the feeling of being in the ocean.
I love love love swimming in the warm ocean. I think I’d love swimming a lot more if I could do it outside. I’m basically an outdoors person and I associate swimming with pools. But the water here is warm and super clear.
So I should move to the South Pacific or try to learn to like the pool or learn to enjoy cold water swimming outdoors in Ontario summers?
Are you an outdoors person who loves swimming? What do you do?
