So, I’ve got some blog posts to go back over and catch up on (unless you’re reading this in the future and I’ve already done them). :¬/
Today’s swim was the weirdest yet. I couldn’t drag myself out of bed for the early morning swim. Monday mornings are always really busy too, so I planned to go for a lunchtime swim. But I forgot that I had a lunchtime appointment. So I ended up going for my first 9pm swim.
The first 20 minutes of the swim were awful. My pacing was far too quick, my stroke was erratic and short, and I felt worn out after just 5 minutes. At that point, I wasn’t sure I would manage a full 10 minutes, let alone an hour. It took nearly the rest of the first half-hour to recover but then I went on to do another 100-length hour. How is that possible?
I’ve now passed the 66 miles marker, which was by far my highest target distance, and I’ve still got 8 swims to go (more if I’m able to swim whilst on holiday).
