Got my ertia...

March 14, 2008

Immediately I made my last post, I went and got my swimsuit and OFFIWENT. And frankly, when I stepped into the pre-swim shower, AND when I stepped into the pool, I regretted it. I think my eerie water-is-too-COLD cry could be heard in all the flats in my apartment building and mothers are still probably comforting their trembling toddlers. There was a fair wind blowing today, too, and it was cooler than it usually is at this time of year…… and it felt, for the first 5 or 6 laps, as if someone had filled up the pool with the contents of their just-melted ice trays. Well, I didn’t actually see polar bears or the march of the penguins, but you get the…drift?

But I stuck to it, did my usual 30 laps (it’s a little pool…call it a poolette, or a pooling) that’s about…perhaps those 30 laps are equal to 15 full-size pool laps, maybe 20…wish it’s the latter! Must find out the dimensions of our poolette…) and felt cold…in fact, for a little while, I had a complexion of a delicate and intriguing shade of blue… but was warmed by the feeling that YES… I did it! (as Higgins says in My Fair Lady).

I do love the great fresh feeling swimming gives, and also the fact that I keep my dinner all ready on the table, and come back and tuck in guiltlessly!

Thank you for the nudge, !

Go to Google Earth. Go to Bangalore. Go to Casa Ansal Apartments…and that little dot going up and down, up and down, up and down….is ME!! :))))

Tra-la, off to Lalbagh tomorrow morning…
