[Swim] Alone in the lane

Dear diary ...
I learned to swim the last year and now I'm going to swim often. How? I'm going to swim from two to four time a week. I love when I'm alone in the lane. I can take my rate and nobody stop it. It's fantastic ... or not? I can not share the relaxation, the quiet, the peace of the lane ... they are only for me. It's a percfet situation to do a race with yourself ... front crawl (free style) and backstroke ... or not?
