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.
