I’ve always lived in a big cities with a big rivers and lakes. Big rivers are not swimmable, I get it. But it is a pity on a hot day u can’t jump into refreshing water, because lakes are also polluted.
Running and cycling on rise as outdoors work outs get more and more popular. And swimming is not. And it is a pity as it is the only sport that is injury free (I am not talking about professional athletes) and recommended by most of the doctors as it benefits people with different kinds of chronicle decease. And it doesn’t affect joints in a long run as a majorty of ground sports.
If only i could swim more often.
Do u think will it be more accessible one day?
You have made me very thankful for something I take for granted living in Vancouver, BC, Canada. We have an abundance of private and civic pools. In the summer, the open water swim options are endless. When I swim tomorrow morning, I will look around and feel a whole new sense of gratitude.
