For the first time since August I was able to swim in a pool with lane lines and that was 25 yards. In fact I had my very own lane. Of course I'm so out of shape! I was sore by the end of my warm up. Two months of not swimming will do that to a person! That and the afternoon sun was beating right down on me. The plus side will be an awesome speedo tan!
Then I helped put in two lane lines so walking down 2x25's and swim 2x25's back so let's chalk that up as a 100.
So 1,100 warm up.
Now since I thought they had set up the pool I went back to find one of the clocks. And I did find three clocks but no batteries. Guess next time if I want to do interval training I'll need to bring my own batteries. Since I am out of shape I really didn't care. Was just curious what I was able to swim.
No interval since I didn't think of brining batteries to the pool. So that was another 900 yards to make it 2,000 yards.
I then decided to try out a few pair of my new goggles from Ministry of Swimming. I already had been wearing a pair of the Zombie Silver for the warm up. Gotta admit I liked them. Out of all the pairs the Zombie was my favorite. So I did about 4 or more 50's but let's say 4 trying on the different goggles and swimming. (200/2200) I then went back to the Zombie Silver goggles to swim a bit more. I'll have to give them all one full workout each before I judge them although I think I have two favorites already.
100 IM swim
Then I did 3x25's underwater / no breathing. Then 1 more 25 easy.
2,700 measily little yards. But it's a start. Rebuilding! I'm going to try a few more lap swims on my own before I start swimming with the local team. But now that I'm an official resident I can use the lap pool for free so swimming is back on!
