As well as cycling, I've also started to increase my swim training while I can't run. After deciding to enter Freedom Tri's Duck N Dash Aquathlon in September (400m swim, 6K run), I thought I ought to train a few times at least at Letchworth Outdoor Pool, to familiarise myself with the layout and the length. The pool is 50m long, so a lot different to the 25m pool at Saxon that I'm used to.
I swam last Thursday with some friends, and today I went on my own to see if I could manage the full 400m distance without stopping between lengths. I didn't really manage that, it's so tiring! I definitely need to practise more. But I covered 800m in 30 minutes, so I'm happy with that.
