At the start of 2014 I was struggling to walk as a protruding disc in my spine made life extremely painful. There were times I would have to crawl around on all fours for a week as the pain was that bad. Before this, I was a cyclist. I cycled on and off since I was a young teenager. For years my back was painful but my passion for cycling overcame the daily agony. After another bout of crippling joy, I decided it was time to stop. I couldn't do it anymore. I wasn't yet 40 but I was feeling like I was 80. I had spent close to a decade putting up with this. My health wasn't going forward, it was only going back. It seriously took a lot of strength to give the sport away. The sport where I had met most of my good friends, and one I was competitive at.
I was then lost. I sat around for a few months. I started to get fat as we headed into winter. A very close friend told me I had to do something, and I agreed. I was always active and fit. She knew I was a swimmer as a kid so suggested I get back in the pool. Pretty much everyone who has been a swimmer as a kid cannot contemplate the thought of following a black line again. I struggled to get my mind around the idea of lap after lap after lap and the seemingly mindlessness than comes with it.
