160 lengths of the pool in 1hr 50 mins! I kept going and going – I could have done more being honest but ran out of time. I want to do 200 lengths which is 5K but prob not enough time.
Tonight I did 100 lengths of the Bolton One Pool – it is MILES better here than the Horwich Leisure Centre. I have to remember to come after 8pm though as they have a stupid pool divider on until 7:50pm which cuts the pool into a 17m pool and a shallow pool for kids.
Did 100 lengths in 70 mins – really chuffed with myself.
OK so after last week I wanted to see if I could do a mile. I came in a little earlier and BOOM I did 64 lengths which is just over a mile. Feel fantastic and quite surprised how far I’ve improved since last week when I couldn’t have done it.
OK so I started swimming tonight as a cheap way of getting fit. Apparently doing breast stroke is far more effective at burning calories/fat in comparison to running, cycling etc.
On the way in I saw Ste Macdonald, an old mate of my brother Pete. He said “Ah you just doing a mile then?” to which I replied “A mile?? Not a chance” – I was quite surprised that even he could do that much? A mile?
Tonight I did 46 lengths but had to come out due to no room because of swimming lessons dominating the pool. Maybe I could try to do a mile next time which is 63 lengths.
