Long term goals

What kind of goals are worthy?

I've been thinking about this lately.

My goals in the pool seem so much more urgent than those for open water. I mean, I just go out there and swim in open water races. Those goals are so much more dependent on the forces...weather, waves, temperature, number of swimmers. But in the pool. Oh yeah. If I set a goal and don't make it, I feel terrible. Even if I don't swim my fastest time. There is no cheating the clock.

So with all this in mind I am resetting my long term goals. I know the pool goals will still vex me. I'll just have to keep swimming different events and mixing it up.

My long term goal is to be doing what I do now at age 60....65... 70... older. I have role models. Take Roxy. She is 59 and has done Alcatraz three times. Wants to do it again. Yowza.

I am always inspired by the stories of older Masters swimmers doing amazing things. Just that they are still out there swimming. I hope I am.

This is the best long term goal I could imagine -- to just keep swimming!
