Something happened to me tonight that hadn’t happened for a long time. I got cold. I was pool walking after my swim and thinking that I shouldn’t post about swimming again for a while. I just wrote about it a few nights ago. But that’s what consistency is. You do the same thing again and again and again and again. Get in the pool. Lace up your running shoes. Lift the heavy thing. Breathe in to a count of 4, breathe out to a count of 6. It’s the same, most of the time with nothing big happening. Tonight I got cold. There was a morning when I was out running and I saw a coyote. Another morning when it was a fox. There was the first time I kicked up into handstand and about a million times before that when I tried to and didn’t. The same thing, over and over, with small differences.
On an entirely different topic, here’s how I keep chlorine from messing up my hair color.
- Saturate hair with water.
- Apply conditioner, liberally.
- Put on swim cap.
- Wash hair as soon as possible after swim.
