Weirdness at the Pool

Strange workout last night.

About midway through two (I thought) swimmers in the next lane asked if they could share my lane -- I was alone at the time. They were trying to get away from a very grumpy swimmer in their lane. I agreed.

Then it turned out that they weren't swimmers at all. They were aqua joggers. Kind of a problem. Fortunately, they kept out of my way and let me pass without problem. (They were actually marathon runners recovering from races and, I suppose, injuries. So, unlike the typical noodler, they respected a swimming workout.)

OK. That's all. I don't have any point to make. Now it's off to the pool.

    I'm glad you let them in. Not sure if you ever look at my blog, but I'm recovering from a sprained ankle; water walking/jogging is one of the best exercises you could do. However when I shared a lane at my gym pool, I'd tell people that I'd be walking and not swimming.

    Sounds like a good case of mutual respect -- you for them & vice-versa. Probably very good they were athletes, if not pool athletes.

    I'm unattached, so I have to be flexible about sharing the lane -- but I was very pleasantly surprised by the runners respected my workout. That's not always the case in the lap swim lanes. Anyway, i had to rescue them from the pool grouch in the slow lane.
