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.
