The slow chap in the fast lane was there again today 🙁 Doing backstroke, badly. Every time he passed under the flags he’d slow down even more and start turning his head to look for the wall. Gah! I gave him two thirds of a length head start and I was hitting the wall next to him just as he was about to set off on the next length. And I wasn’t the only one going at a significantly faster pace than he was. There were only three people in the “medium pace” lane, too.
I don’t know if I’m just feeling excessively aggrieved because I’m a bit tired at the moment, but I am a bit miffed about the situation. The lane is quite clearly labelled “FAST” at both ends, and he clearly isn’t. (In fact I’m not either really, but I’m usually the fastest person there.)
