Another pool side lesson

Last night the swim coach decided to move people up a lane - presumable to move us out of our comfort zones. I moved up into the lane that Alan's was 'pacing' - apparently he is 65 and without a doubt he is a human torpedo. So yet again I had 60 minutes of pain. Yet again I kept coming in last.

Now, my head knows it was good for me. I am sure I had a more beneficial swim as a result. But being out of my comfort zone is not pleasant and you don't go home in quite the same frame of mind.

Life is like that - we know it is good to raise our game it just so much more comfortable where we are.
