Only thing to rant about this week is my first swim of the week. I appreciate people doing new years resolutions and wanting a healthier lifestyle and swimming is a great, low impact, high calorie burn activity to do ( triathlon aside - that is why i am doing it) but know your speed people. I am not a zoomy maczoomerton anymore in the pool, but i keep a good pace. If you ask to join a lane, have a look to see at what rate the person is swimming so you can gage on whether you will be a good lane mate. Some starts and stops are too be expected, and if you are the one slowing up the show, recognize that and allow for others to pass you, there is no shame in that, everyone is trying to do something different. But DO NOT keep swimming at the same slower rate and force others into a place where they have to wait for you to swim almost an entire length before they can go, or get huffy if you get passed.
Just wave them on, or hug a corner until they can pass you. Seriously it is not a big deal. I have no problem sharing my lane, okay i do, but i am a brat, but understand lane swim etiquette and we all win. Okay rant over.
See you in the deep end
