>So occasionally I do something really dumb. Last night was one such night. Thought I’d share the story with you.
I go to swim. I do my warm up, my drill set and my kick set. Part of my main set included a 1000 swim. Now, I’m really pretty good about just zoning out on those longer swims. I mean it’s not like I have to pay attention or anything…just follow the black line and turn when I’m supposed to. Apparently, for me part of that is fairly difficult – or at least it was last night.
I was about 750 yards into the 1000. Just cruising along. I guess I was thinking about something, but I’m not sure what. I was coming up to the end of the lane, and I know I saw the black “T” at the end of the lane…but it didn’t register anything. Next thing I know, I crashed full force into the wall — with my head! Hurt like a mother! Made me bite my tongue and I had an immediate headache that lasted until I went to sleep. This morning, the entire top of my head is sore – feels like I’ve got an egg on the top of my head (which isn’t good because of the “normal” size of my melon being as big as it is).
I felt like such an idiot. There were swim team kids all around, another dude in my lane, and of cause the lifeguards. I did a quick scan around, and it didn’t look like anyone noticed. At least no one was laughing at me. And no one came rushing over to see how I was feeling.
I’m such an idiot.
Have you done anything as boneheaded as this???
