A lane for yourself alone?  Why?  Is it your swimming skills that vastly need improvement; or, perhaps your blindness skills?  
Sincerely,

Here at the pool at the University of Wisconsin, I call ahead and they set a lane aside for me so I can have it to myself. Its only a minor sacrifice because there are usually several lanes with only one person in them. So when they reserve a lane for me, it only means one other person has to share a lane.
