Only Half the Star I Thought I was

Tuesday I woke up and checked my Twitter feed and saw a Tweet from a fellow runner that it took him an hour and 20 minutes to do 2500 meters in the pool. I puffed up my chest and thought "Ha, I'll do 2100 today in 30 minutes!" I was so sure of myself.

I got to the pool and banged out 42 lengths in 30 minutes, or 2100 meters in a 50 meter pool. Trouble is when I actually looked up the pool length instead of asking the lifeguard it was actually only 23 meters! The lifeguard LIED!!!! I'll still beat his time but I am severely disappointed. I thought I was a swimming golden child!! Now, I'm just ordinary.
