Just as I laughed about the colonoscopy conversation a couple weeks ago, we had another funny workout chat last week. This time it was about tattoos. Only at masters workout do you share a lane with more tattoos than people. There were 3 of us in the lane that day (a guy, bikini girl, and I) and between the 3 of us we counted 9 tattoos. Well, 9 that were visible. I wouldn’t be surprised if there were more! LOL!
What brought the conversation up was that bikini girl had been gone from workout for about 3 weeks and I told her that I’d missed her at practice. (Yes, I was afraid she had discovered my blog… just kidding!). Come to find out, she had been letting her new tattoo heal. Then the guy in our lane chimed in and showed us this really cool mermaid tattoo he has and explained the meaning of all the elements. It was really fascinating to hear the thought that went into it.
The rest of the practice I thought about how lucky I am to swim with such fun and interesting people. The workout flew by and before I knew it we were done. By the way, the main set that day was 3x500s. That was the longest set I had done since my return! Ouch! Just wanted to be sure you know that we don’t do more talking than swimming….
