Song Translation "Swimming, Swimming in the Swimming Pool"
Since scoring my free pass to the YMCA I have gone swimming a few times in the 25 meter pool. The other day I swam in the lane next to a girl I know from Chris' karate classes. She is known as "Mad Maddi" because she is highly dedicated to everything she does and she does it all to an extreme level of perfection.
Chris had been talking to her about his swimming adventures (as he stated he "swims like a cat") and she told him she is 1 second off from Olympic qualifying times. Well how could I pass up a challenge like that when I could compare my speed to an actual swimmer? I timed myself consistently at 40 seconds per length of the pool. She set off with two other swimmers in her lane and they each completed their warm-up lengths in 20 seconds. That is 20 seconds regardless of the stroke they were using - even legs only using a flutter board. Heck she could glide 1/3 of the pool underwater just from her push-off.
