Yesterday I did laps. I swam for five and a quarter hours at the Ramada Sports Centre pool. I was able to do it, thanks to my secret weapon – my SwiMP3 player. Swimming laps for long periods of time is extremely boring and hence a real challenge. But not anymore. Loaded up with great music and a couple of podcasts I happily swam all those hours – in fact, the time passed quite quickly. It's not exactly hi-fi, but it sure beats the sound of bubbles.
I spent most of the day listening to songs from the "Rogues Gallery" album. It seems that when Johnny Depp was filming Pirates of the Carribbean, he became interested in sea shanties, ballads and pirate songs. Depp initiated a compilation album performed by a wide array of artists, including Sting, Bryan Ferry, Nick Cave, Lou Reed, and others.
I'm going to do another long pool session on the 22nd, however this time I will swim a full 6 hours. Have to say, I couldn't do it without my SwiMP3 player.
