I wrote that yesterday’s session felt quite good though I had no concrete way to judge as my stopwatch, err, stopped. Permanently. Fortunately I have a spare (a spare spare in fact, as my son was using my first spare) … Continue reading

For whatever reason it was relatively quiet at the pool today. Irritatingly though my Sportcount “Yellow” stopwatch decided to die on me. It was working fine on Tuesday when I last used it. I think water must have found a … Continue reading

Swimming, 2nd July 2021

What a difference from yesterday! And despite having someone in the lane who was a bit of a mobile roadblock. Fast enough (just) to be there, but a fair bit slower than the fastest of us and with poor lane … Continue reading

Swimming, 1st July 2021

Today’s session was a bit of a struggle. I didn’t sleep well and it showed when the time came to find a bit of energy for swimming. The session wasn’t awful, just not particularly stunning. Most of the 50m reps … Continue reading
