Reasons I Have Come Up With to Not Swim

– It’s cold.
– It’s dark.
– The pool is probably closed.
– I have a lot of other shit to do.
– It’s too late for a swim and I’m tired.
– It’s too early for a swim and I’m tired.
– Who needs swimming anyway.
– It’s a rest week and I shouldn’t waste energy swimming during a rest week.
– I just did a hard workout and nailed it, so I deserve to not have to swim.
– I just did a hard workout and bombed it, so I deserve to not have to swim.
– My back hurts.
– My stomach hurts.
– Which brings us to yesterday: I ate a hamburger and fries and KitKat bites too close to my run and had to take way too many bathroom stops during the run and now I feel really sick to my stomach and should probably lay down instead of swim.
