The first 25 meters

I went swimming at lunch today. 1,000 meters. Nothing special. Nice to get back to the pool after the holidays.

Lately, I've been really enjoying the feeling of the first 25 meters. That very first length. I'm happy to be at the pool. I feel strong. I feel relaxed. The first 25 meters is always nice and easy. It's as if there's no hydraulic friction.
