"I survived” is what I say at the end of every practice, while my lane mates are laughing, joking, and yelling something along the lines of “that was great!”, “I feel all relaxed now”.
These guys are in their 60’s and 70’s, and our workouts are challenging! I admire their grit and I’m envious of how much fun they have.
What they’ve shown me is a better way to experience practice, and life in general.
If you have fun and praise yourself when you do hard things, then you’re likely to keep going.
And if you keep going, you can be remarkably strong too.
