LGN 125: Swimming 2

Inside: Level up; Waterproof-ish; Water-shy Remember in my last post about swimming I was saying how if it wasn’t challenging enough I’d try to find a way to make it more challenging. Like maybe I could try to tread water the whole time? Well, that was a ridiculous thing to say. Swimming is exhausting. For…

Until The City Burned
