Oh, and I thought this was going to be an addendum to the BM thread.
LMFAO jj I TOTALLY thought it would be about floating turds too
i totally left it that way on purpose. funny story, that's was one of the plotlines that was going to permeate "no diving" - the "fecal phantom" - a mysterious ass-ailant who leaves a brown trail of clues. and yes, it's based on a true story, swear to god.
As it is, that's some crazy-ass swimming vinsunt- are you trying to go pro or something, or just doing it for fitness??
um... not pro, but i was going to train up to swim across the hudson river this summer for a conservation fund raiser where you swim across from newburgh to beacon, which is about a mile. except the missus dragged her heels paying for the use of the local high school's pool, so i ended up not even starting to train until after registration for this year's even was closed. so i'm training for next year.
the over-all reason is for fitness, but i can't just "work out" - i need to fool myself into getting into shape. that's why martial arts is so good for me - i get to learn cool shit while getting into shape. unfortunately, martial arts is really expensive - probably about monthly what we paid for a year to use the pool. i was using the river swim as my incentive to do it, and it worked even though i'm now training for next year.
as for the "crazy-ass swimming" - that's nothing! when i was in high school, that's what i swam in competition. practices were even more yards. every news year's day we swam that many laps, took about 3 hours. swimming comes very naturally to me, i guess.
and where ya doing it- not in the local water?!?!?
