Day 10

Day 10 Swim Report

Number of laps: 38
Time: 55 minutes
Pace: Somewhat fast

Today was one of those days.  Got a late start for the pool after dinner, then ran into a huge detour due to road construction.  Got there 20 minutes late, then found half the lanes roped off for a class.  Squeezed in next to a big guy doing 30-second butterfly laps and managed to bang out 38 of my own before the pool closed.

One positive outcome:  On the long detour, I caught most of a very interesting episode of All Sides with Ann Fisher on WOSU.  You should check it out!  Here were the guests:

  • Karen Joy Fowler, author of We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves, a fictional account of a family that tries to raise a chimpanzee
  • Dr. Sally Boysen, professor of psychology who ran a cognitive research lab with 11 chimpanzees at Ohio State for many years
  • Amy Fultz, co-founder and behavior director at Chimp Haven sanctuary in Louisiana, where Dr. Boysen’s chimps are now and where the government may soon retire 500 more chimps from federal research labs.
