training swim #1

Ponds Forge lane swimming.  First time in the water for maybe a decade. Swimming 25m widths, set off and lost count. Timed a width at around 1 minute.

Aimed to do 50 minutes, same as 5 miles at 10 mins a mile.

Probably did 46/48 widths =  1150-1200m.  Was surprised as before after a couple of lengths I’d be knackered.

Getting out I rediscovered gravity and my body felt like it was made of lead.

A good workout.  Knee was fine in the water.
