Janathon Day 19/31, Learn to swim

by on Jan.19, 2011, under Janathon Juneathon

Well today I had a work colleague keep me company(well that was the plan) she was doing some trainig near by (normally based in Purfleet) and as she is well, bloody good at swimming and does a lot of 5K outside swims for an example, thought be nice to hit the pool and get a few pointers…oh how wrong we I

Got to the pool, get changed, meet in the pool and in we get, I thought right 40 lengths here we come…OHHHHHH NOOOOOO so off Kay goes for a quick 6 lengths, I manage 4 in the same time…’right now lets see you do front crawl’ she says…off I go…let just say even though I be swimming for 30+ years (only 35 so been swimming a while) I was doing it wrong, so now I doing it right (well more right then wrong it almost like relearning to swim), going a hell of a lot quicker, feels better but boy I really am unfit.

I think I managed about 20 length in the time, but to sey I had a far far better workout is an understatement!!!!! SO big thanks to Kay for helping me do it right, so from now it quality not quanity that counts….means that to practise I can’t use the Gym pool as it to small(great for cool down though), hell I swimming that pool underwater in one go already..lol

Roll on Next Wednesday when I be going back for another 20 fast lengths….

I am so going to hurt in the morning but it all good
