In previous posts, I’ve presented some of my initial challenges with swimming on my back: Does your neck hurt when you do that?
I’ve also celebrated my progress and ability to predict the end of the pool by watching ceiling tiles: Procrastination & BTTW
Today, my neck was in a great position. I was swimming in a reasonably straight line – tracking with the ceiling tiles. I easily spotted the broken tiles which signaled the end of the lane. I completely failed to extend my arm.
Bam. Right into the wall.
I kid you not.
