Went swimming at Westfield with Jacqui.  The pool was the busiest I’ve seen it but I grabbed a lane near the side of the pool. Did 4x 10 lengths, with hardly any break between the blocks to keep my lane. Still had to dodge lots of bodies and slow from my easy pace to almost nothing at times.

Distance:  1000m. (40x 25m)
Time: approx 43 mins

Frozen cold, 0C. Went for my usual 7 mile run. Wrapped up warm. The paths were covered in ice from yesterday’s snow fall that had been walked on then frozen overnight. Tiptoed round carefully. More concerned with avoiding injury than speed. Only had one major slip but recovered balance ok.  Right leg niggle still there but I was also focused on stiff calves.

Distance:  11.53km
