The room was hot but there was a smokin' hot, 20 something Asian gal who set up in front of me. As I chatted her up on the way to the parking lot she popped the trunk on a Cadilac CTS, got in and drove away.
The salt water pool I used to take my daughter to when she was a kid had a high diving board and a twisty slide. It was always entertaining to watch the kids come out of the slide and high drama watching them on the high dive, especially those who were afraid of heights!The secret is out...yoga classes are loaded with beautiful women.
Since about the middle of May I've been going to our neighborhood outdoor swimming pool just about every day. It's not fancy at all but just a pretty large and pretty old pool anybody can join. It's seldom remotely crowded. Sometimes it's a bit crowded for swimming my laps but there are loads of good exercises to be had in a pool.
I never feel or believe I have reason to feel afraid of the virus there. There is some social distancing and a good bit of attention paid to cleaning at appropriate and frequent intervals.
Half an hour is my minimum, but I'm more likely to stay moving in the pool for about an hour. Swimming, walking, treading water, and all sorts of other movements occupy my time. Any movement against the resistance of the water counts in my view of it.
I truly love being in the water + I get to talk a bit with (usually) old ladies, and play with the children a bit sometimes, and watch kids dive off the diving board, some of them being pretty good at it, and also talk with and look at the lifeguards one of whom is barely sixteen but both very nice and very nice to look at. She also a fabulous diver (and doesn't even know it).
I wouldn't say she looks eighteen to me.
It's not a hot yoga class but it will do for summertime exercise.
The major benefits are both physical and mental. I can relax in the pool to a degree impossible elsewhere. It also allows me to forget that Western Civilization seems to be on the precipice. My hips hurt when I walk very far at all, which really limits me, and I have all sorts of aches and pains, but nothing hurts in the water. I feel so much better when I spend a good bit of time moving in the water.
I'm not by any means a fast swimmer, but I am a Total Immersion trained swimmer, and, even before that, a skilled enough swimmer to get by in most settings. Gliding though the water feels so good. Even better is gliding overlaid with power strokes which I sometimes play with because it's occasionally fun to increase the speed and because I like to intermittently up my power output.
Over the now two and a half months of daily pool visits I've gotten in somewhat better shape, too, not that I'm not still fat, old, and way out of shape. Still, all progress is good.
A few times weather has prevented my pool time, but it's not been a bad summer here for late afternoon thunderstorm (some summers they're a big inconvenience for after work swimmers).
Happy shaves and happy workouts to you,
Great images brought to mind by your memories.The salt water pool I used to take my daughter to when she was a kid had a high diving board and a twisty slide.
