Mud n Water

Janathon day 2:

A six mile off road run this morning that was a combination of mud, more mud, ankle-grabbing brambles, and yet more mud. Brilliant!

Took advantage of an offer from Tonbridge swimming pool for a “2-month swim as often as you want” deal. To be cost effective I will need to swim at least 10 times before the 2nd of March. Hopefully that will be good motivation for me to get stuck into my least favourite activity.

For today’s swim I decided to do at least 10 lengths with full recovery between each lap. Not a hard decision, given I didn’t think I could manage a double length without alarming the life guards. After 35 minutes I had 20 lengths completed – I’m guessing any reasonably competent swimmer would have taken 6 or 7 minutes for that. Imagine then my surprise when I logged the swim on the Janathon group & found I was joint top of the leader-board. This may be because only 1 other person had logged a swim AND runningfree rounded up to nearest kilometre.

Probably fair to say that I will never be a good swimmer & I’ll always prefer a run or a ride or a paddle to a swim. But I’m going to crack on to see if I can get to the 400M necessary for a sprint Tri.
