Today the main event at swim practice was 5 individual medleys--for each one I was doing one length of the pool butterfly, one backstroke, one breaststroke, and one freestyle--alternating with 5 100 yard freestyles (most of the others were doing 200 yards). I kept thinking of Samuel Johnson:
"Sir, a woman's preaching is like a dog's walking on his hind legs. It is not done well; but you are surprised to find it done at all."I'm impressed I can do it at all.
