I did it, I went swimming for about the 2nd time in over a year. I was supposed to do the Swimathon in March but decided not to as I think I’d only been in the pool once since the last one and I wasn’t sure I’d get through 50 lengths let alone 200! Anyway, as part of my challenge in May I said that I would run or swim at least once a week in addition to the parkrun. Yes, I know I did an additional run this week but as the weather forecast is for *heavy* rain tomorrow I’m not sure I’ll be able to drag the Boy round the parkrun so I went for a swim today.
I told myself that I was going to swim a minimum of 20 lengths or 15 minutes, whichever took longer. According to my lovely Speedo Aquacoach watch, I ended up swimming for 17:24 and completed 30 lengths (750m). I should have done 32 lengths, then I would have done 1/2 a mile.
I did 10 lengths front crawl as a warm up followed by 5x 1 length steady, 1 length fast. I then did 1 length arms only, 1 length fast x3 and finished with 4 lengths steady alternating breaststroke and front crawl to cool down.
