Today’s #AspireChannelSwim was tough. My arms were aching within minutes and I was out of breath after 15. It’s not unusual for me to feel fatigued quickly. I usually stop after 10 lengths for a quick drink and shake out but it would normally pass shortly after that. Today I felt fatigued for well over half an hour with my lungs and abdomen burning.
Thankfully it did pass eventually and I pushed on to the 1-hour target I’d set myself. Somehow, despite, all that (or maybe a failure to pace myself properly was actually the cause of all that) I managed 98 lengths in that time. 10 more than I’ve previously done in an hour.
