Out of Control

Yesterday I tried swimming (the crawl) for the first time in a couple months and the first time since rotator cuff surgery six weeks to the day. It just happened. The head went under, the feet pushed off the wall of the pool and the rhythm of my prior life took over. No pain, no stiffness, I was more smooth than I thought I would be. Easy does it and after the first lap it sort of hit me; I am swimming, swimming well, without pain. Praise God !

The swim lasted for a quarter mile at a time which was about par for times prior to surgery. I was out of control. Went home and signed up for a triathlon to be held in two weeks. Thank you God !
