I’ve been having motivation problems this week and I’ve hardly been underwater in any kind of meaningful fashion. So I’ve decided to break out of my funk with a field trip! I’m going to go swim with my far away adopted team, CVMM, this weekend. I’m planning to hit the Saturday morning practice at CLU and then go over to a backstroke clinic they’re hosting at the Simi Valley pool a little bit later. It should be fun!
If you ever get bored or stuck in a bad mood aquatically I highly recommend dropping in with another masters team just for some excitement. It always recharges my swim motivation-ometer. Use it as an excuse to visit a swim friend or to check out a city you want to go to. Most teams are open to a drop in from a visitor as long as you let them know in advance you want to come swim. In the past I’ve dropped in a quite a few places and everyone always seems to find a spot for me, so don’t be shy about reaching out to another team to make a visit!
