Today I went into the indoor swimming pool again. Today I wanted to try the 50 meter laps. My distances increase, because I am getting used to it again. Today I swam the 50 meters about 24 times, that means it must have been about 1.2 kilometers. I tried a couple of laps to be fast, but overall I just wanted to swim for a long time. I think I was one and a half hour in the pool, but of course I also jumped a few times from the spring boards at the end. I am pretty sure that I burned a lot of calories, if you believe all those calculators in the web, it should have been about 1000 kilocalories. And I am pretty sure this is right, because when I went home, I became hungry, so hungry that it felt like starving. At home I ate enough to feel good again.
Talking about the pool again, there was a swimming club doing training on the other side of the pool, and it’s mind-blowing how fast they swim 50 meters. I mean really, it’s insane how fast they are. And from a photographers standpoint, it looks aesthetic, because they glide through the water like dolphins. People in Germany value their privacy, and it’s of course forbidden to take photos in the indoor pool. If you would do that, people would think you’re a creep. But if I ever hear that they are looking for a photographer, I’d totally offer to take photos for them. I mean seriously, sports photography is probably as interesting as any other subject.
