I really wasn’t looking forward to swimming today. On the way to the pool and even through the first 800m or so I felt very tired. It may have been down to spending much of the weekend two hours drive away in a large public sauna with uncomfortable seating, humidity at maximum and having my ears assaulted by a PA that rendered the announcer almost but not entirely utterly unintelligible. Or, as it’s often abbreviated in the swimming community, “going to regionals”.
Once I’d got over the initial horror however, I found myself quite enjoying it and swam 2,800m front crawl even getting out before the public session was finished.
