I ended up chatting to one of our club swimmers who was in the school session immediately before the public one, and then to his dad who was helping out, so got into the pool a little late. For that reason I just got my head down and swam 8 x 250m front crawl, just thinking about technique. It was quite a struggle towards the end. My arms were feeling very tired.
