I must admit, my lackluster swim performance upon returning to the pool from a 6 month sabbatical – had me thinking. Am I really out of swim shape? My immediate reaction is yes! Swimming and Running really don’t have a lot in common. These are distinct sports with specific demands.

Have I forgotten the nuances of technique – paying attention to the little details? Today, Christmas eve – just hours before the pool closes – I would return to the pool to find out.
