Sorry but I need to rant 'cause I went to do my swim today wanting to do 1600m, but it was cut short by doggy paddlers!
We only have 2 lanes, slow and fast. I'm too slow for fast and too fast for slow, so to begin with I always go in slow to get a continuous swim and warm up. Not today bl**dy head above water inconsiderate doggy paddlers who just continue like they have no care in the world-grrrrrrrrr!
It wouldn't be so bad if they pulled in and allowed you to pass, but NO do they heck!
I would have to turn before the end of the lane to get in front and then I'd catch them up again and even though this one women in particular had been resting when I approached her, she decided to pull out in front of me forcing me to stop as she was barely moving. She even had to stop a few times before the end of her coming back length as she couldn't quite make it. Come on now.....!
Went in the fast lane in the end, which I'm sure did me good as I had to do 2 lengths fast followed by a few secs recovery to allow speedsters to pass before repeating.
I know everyone has a right to swim and enjoy their swim, but for goodness sake stay in the main pool area if you can't swim properly!
Rant over and hope the said people enjoyed their leisurely swims!:o)
