Holy crap. I have been so bombarded by work lately someone should just permanently solder (I know. Big, official word. No I am not a welder) the computer keyboard to my fingers. And, my office chair to my ass. This is getting ridiculous.
Here I am working. I only pick my nose when I really need to concentrate:
But, I always have time for you. And, the pool. Which brings me to today’s dilemma. Choose a side and let me know.
Question: Is it wrong/inappropriate to use the lap lane for water running?
Scenario: Today I was doing a 52 minute interval workout. I started in the deep end, but the pussy posse started to invade my space and I was feeling crowded. Plus, these ladies really like to chat, chat, chat and I’m not much of a chatter when I’m doing intervals. I’m more of huffer and puffer. Like when I smoke.
So, I decided to move to a lap lane. Keep in mind the lifeguards had told me I could do this. I asked an older gentleman (penis posse member?) if I could share his lane. He seemed peeved. He said, “Well…I guess” with the same conviction that I say, “Well, I guess” when someone asks me to clean up the dog diarrhea on the carpet.
I started my thing, being very careful to stay on my side of the lane, giving grandpa ample room. The second another lane became open, Mr. Irritated moved over. I know he was pissed. I could read it in the lines on his face.
I should add, I would NOT attempt this with more than two people in a lane.
There are two sides:
Opposing: Hell no!! Lap lanes are for swimming only. Not dorky water running. I don’t care if you have a broken hip.
In Favor: Why not? I mean as long as you are just using your half of the lane, who cares what you’re doing? You paid the same amount to get in the pool as the lap swimmers. You should be free to gallop, cartwheel or do the Macarena to your heart’s content. Plus, if the PO (pool officials) say it’s okay, then you’re good.
I am curious what you think. Yay or Nay?
I realize I might get my ass chewed on this one. All you tri people will be sayin’, “NO you di’int!”
Not that it matters, but I already decided that I have to move my workout time. I don’t want to fight for room for my pussy and I don’t want to share a lane. But, I still am wanting to know your opinion…what’s the right thing to do?
Getting back to work,
