Physical Challenge: Swim 1 Mile

A month or two back I saw some information about the Sport Relief Swimathon, which mentioned that 64 lengths of a 25 metre pool is a mile. I filed that information away in my head as the pool at my gym is 25 metres. I knew this would make a good challenge one day.

My original plan for today was to have a crack at my 30:30:30 Mini “Triathlon” but my thighs were hurting after a 3.1 mile run on Friday. I don’t know why, because I stretched before and afterwards, but there you go.

Usually when I go swimming I only swim for about half an hour because I find it quite dull, but today, having a target to aim for kept my interest. I finished the 64 lengths no problem, in 50 minutes from beginning to end. I did four lengths of breast stroke at the beginning and again at the end as a warm-up and cool-down and the rest was front crawl.

How far do you swim?

Apparently blogs need to cover a certain niche in order to attract readers. My aim is not to attract readers. I don't deny it would be nice not to just be spouting to myself, but the reason I set this blog up was to give myself somewhere to write down my thoughts. If anyone reads them, that's a bonus. This blog will cover a mix of things - anything that comes to mind that I want to write about. I make no promises about how often I will publish new content.
