Another 10-minute wait for the leisure centre to open to I could be pool-side at 7am-on-the-dot to start to my #AspireChannelSwim because I had to commute into the office immediately afterwards. After yesterday’s 45 min swim I added an extra 15 mins today to keep the 1 hour average going.
I’m definitely feeling the cumulative effects of swimming an hour every day. The fatigue level this morning was quite high. The last 15 minute set of lengths was tough and I only just managed to get to 76 mins without having to quit early.
122 lengths over 76 minutes is bang on the 96 – 98 lengths per hour pace, but I’d only managed 42 at the half-hour mark, so it’s my early pace that’s slowing me down.
