The day before my first run, which was about 10 weeks ago, I went swimming at my local pool. On that occasion I had aimed to do 30 lengths but stopped after 20, or more accurately 2 sets of 10 with a break inbeetween, I had to stop, I was knackered!
Now today I didn't fancy running on the pavements with 6 inches of compressed snow on them (call me a wimp if you like) so decided to go for a swim. I had decided I would aim for 40 leghts but would be happy with 30, I ended up doing 60! And I only stopped there because the pool got too busy to swim comfortably. It is a 25 meter pool so that is just a touch under 1 mile.
It is amazing how my fitness is increasing and it has become addictive! Yesterday, despite trying to pretend sledging was a workout, I did nothing and felt terrible, now on non running days I want t cross train or swim. Hello new me
