Swimming 1:00:00 [3] 1.1 km (54:33 / km)
shoes: Bare Feet

Swimming....If I didn't end up smelling so heavily of chlorine afterwards I would manage to get some more in!!

Apologies to all the crew lately...I have been trying to get a new job, and in my book, I don't want to turn up to a job interview when i'm down to the last 2 people, smelling of chlorine!

Aside from that, I need to start up my riding again in the mornings, have only done it once so that the Christmas rush at work is done (I hate anyone who buys hams or turkey for christmas, thats all we have been shipping lately.....), I might have a little less stress to deal with.

Swimming 1:30:00 [4] 2.0 km (45:00 / km)
shoes: Bare Feet

2km!! Booyah!

Feeling a bit tight afterwards, coffee chill did it's magic, felt great.

Felt so pumped, I hauled a plate compactor out of the way of my new trailer when I picked it up 30 mins after training. The weak little auction guy couldnt move it an inch, just hauled it out the way and glared at him, Paul you would have been so proud!

Going to throttle back over the next few sessions to around the 1500m mark, 2km was a great hurdle to get over, but it's just a bit too much of a push at present to consistantly do, and not feel like a meatbag afterwards.

Breathing is getting MUCH easier....was actually able to do freestyle with 4 strokes between breaths instead of the usual 3, I haven't had this kind of lung function for a very long time.

Toom's swimming pointers helped out, makes me feel a lot more aware of how my stroke is working, and I think it did make a bit of a difference today, just need to work it until it becomes second nature too. Many thanks for the help Tooms!
