The lucky thing about a new watch is that, despite using my previous watch for swimming for a whole year or so, I don't seem to have stored any records for my previous swimming efforts. The watch keeps track of things like "longest distance" and "fastest such-and-such meters." And with a new watch I am routinely rewarded for my gradual increasing efforts. Its a small thing, but it beats looking at my swimming fitness from nearly three years back and feeling a tinge of self-pity over where I was then ... versus where I am now. Now I can compare the last couple weeks of progress and get a little endorphin rush from the tiny successes.
