First day back at the usual indoor pool, and a pleasure to swim in cooler water, if quite hard work getting back into the swing of things. To celebrate I added a few hundred metres each of kick and bilateral breathing practice to the usual front crawl and covered 2.8km in total.
The bad news is that a few hundred metres of road on my route to the pool has been completely closed and traffic diverted along a route that probably gets close to an extra twenty miles. The only shorter routes involve lots of single track backroads with limited numbers of passing places. The one I took today doubled my journey time. I’ll have to try something different tomorrow.
Total distance for the month: 31,800m
Total distance for this year: 283,900m
Distance compared to annual target: 7,300m ahead
