Went swimming today for the first time in a long while after I kept reading how good it is as cross training for runners. Swimming used to be the only exercise I used to do (and even that not regularly) and I live round the corner from our local baths. I just wish I had learnt to front crawl when young as I am sure that it is much better for legs/knees than breast stroke. Still, I hope the swimming will have gently stretched slightly achy leg muscles and prepared them for trying running on a track for the first time tomorrow. Did only 20 lengths (we have 33m lanes), but hey, it was meant to be rest day after all
