Swimming

Power Plant

I started swimming again. I don't, and likely won't, do gyms, so this is my preferred cardio work out. I don't have to deal with sweat, and it's perfect for hot days (which is 90 percent of days in Metro Manila). It took longer for the cleaners to declare the pool clean enough for public use than what I had expected, about a month after the Taal became quiet. I think and pray when I swim. While air-drying myself up, I read the Bible and have my devotions. Inside my bag are my Speedo goggles with corrective lenses, a quick-dry towel, my Midori Traveler's Notebook, my cell phone (which has the ESV app), and my fountain pen; here, it's the TWSBI 580 AL. Sometimes, I bring a Kindle, too, for some leisurely reading.

How do you exercise?

  1. I walk. It's free kasi. Otherwise I'd love to swim.
    How much did your speedo goggles cost? With high myopia and astigmatism, I bet mine would cost a leg.

    1. Around Php 600 to 800 pesos. Bought it from Speedo at Trinoma (or was it SM North) around two years ago. The "grades" come in increments; I suggest you pick the closest to your visual acuity. For instance, if you're a negative 550, you can get the negative 500 lenses.

      Walking is great, too, as it's easy for you to access fresh air and trees.
