Swimmer on a Mission: Days 5 and 6

23 July 2014

Date: Day of this post.

Days 3 and 4 are forever lost to the abyss known as my memory. They were this weekend’s Saturday and Sunday. I have enough trouble remembering which locker is mine after a workout at the pool. You’ll live without them. Without further ado:

Swimmer on a Mission: Days 1 and 2

23 July 2014

Date: Weekend of the 12th and 13th.
