Flower Power

TriMadMan45by TriMadMan45Feb 14th 2012
Having headed to the local pool last night for a swim with a few club members I was a bit dissapointed when the only other person who turned up was an elderly lady in a fetching flower studded swim cap and a pair of tinted goggles. Not even a club member and clearly well out of her depth (metaphorically speaking) she decided to join me in the fast lane - bear in mind there were only 4 other people in the entire pool I was a bit shocked when she jumped in to the lane.
With a 3km session planned out I was going to have to be quick with my drills and speed sessions to fit it in before the friendly pool attendant threw me out after an hour. While the lady did not hinder me for the first set of the session as my speed increased after the warm up and first set of drills her breaststroke speed reduced significantly and I found myself clipping her feet a few times. Not once did she move or go into the main pool with the other 2 remaining people. I completed my 3km in time before being asked to leave by the pool attendant just at the same time the lady finished her session. Lets hope she is not along tonight as I dont think I could take another interuppted session - I couldnt even draft her as I was even faster than her when glidding.
