I arrived on poolside today to find a number of slow(er than me) swimmers taking up multiple lanes. Fortunately the lifeguards were happy to make another lane for me. I don’t relish the prospect of piling into some lady twenty years my senior swimming at half my speed 🙁
Anyhow, another reduced interval for my session today, which meant I was expecting it to be tough going and was aware that I might struggle to get through the entire set. I wasn’t wrong either. I was pretty much on the limit as the set progressed, still breathing fairly heavily by the time I started each new rep. Somewhat to my surprise however I did in fact get through the entire set, though walking in a straight line was quite demanding once I climbed out of the pool 🙂
That means another reduced interval for next time. Given how tough I found it today I think getting all the way through another set immediately might be asking too much, but we’ll just have to see how it goes.
