Oh beautiful empty pool, how i love you. I was shocked at the peace and quiet in there yesterday after work. I got my side lane that i like, up against the wall. I remembered every thing to swim - cozzy, pull-bouy, watch and drink - flipped my book open and it landed on a workout i was happy to try - sometimes i flick to get one that suits my mood. I hadn't swam in 2 weeks, the pool was closed for 5 days and it had been so busy i was hesitant to go back, i get annoyed at inconsiderate swimmers all doing breaststroke and not leaving a lane for fast folks. I had also been concentrating on running for a bit, so i was totally expecting this swim to be harder. I felt like i had been training for years. I had an amazing workout. I loved the swim set, it was interesting and fun. Just fab!
200 crawl 4x25 concentrating on distance per stroke
200 @T + 5sec 30RI
100 @ T x3 15RI
Bonus 1min rest
12x50 odd easy even fast. 15RI
Repeat set once
I added in 150m of pullboy as i was feeling so damn gooood!
Cool down 225 crawl
Total = 2625m
A woman interrupted me to ask about my book. It really is great. A really decent amount of workouts, great practical size for the pool side (A6) and of course the waterproof nature because its pages are actually plastic. I never dry it off, just leave it in the bottom of my bag.
I have finally got labels for my Marmalade. And i have a new addiction. Not to eating it, but making it (and giving some away), well okay, i really like to eat it too - or what would be the point! I already have more oranges and plan on buying more this weekend. I want more of the dark and chunky but also want to make some lighter thin shred too.
It is the most satisfying thing i have done in ages.
At least as satisfying as the cushions i made a few weeks ago.
