A part of the “baby steps” that I’ve been working on is to get back to the pool. It’s really silly all the things I allow to keep me from the pool: laziness, hairy legs, money, fear of the unknown if they have dared change anything…
When I was looking on the City of Raleigh’s website at prices of pool passes, I had decided I could go to the pool 3 times a week and pay about $36 per month. Worth it. But then I happened to notice they have annual pool passes for only $180, less than half of what I was willing to pay.
Plus, the annual pool pass has the built-in motivating factor: I’m paying for it, so I might as well use it. I also don’t have to limit my visits, because it doesn’t cost me any more to go more frequently: I’m aiming to go 5 times a week.
So yesterday, I decided to do it. I paid $180 and swam once.
Good thing I plan on going back today (and the day after, and the day after that…).
