For day 3 of the Kx365 challenge a swim was on the cards.
This had been discussed before travelling however when packing I’d thought blow it and not packed my cossie. Or my swimming watch.
So a cossie was purchased and goggles. Luckily husband had a spare cap, although I often don’t bother with this (and get told off when I moan my hair is like straw).
Off we went to the local pool at 8:30 on a Sunday. It was busy!
As my pace has dropped significantly since my ankle injury, I chose the medium lane. And old school took a mental note of the time on the wall clock and off I went.
The goal was 4 sets of 500m to do 2k in total. Which got done. And I feel marvellous.
I’ve been hitting the core and cardio work quite hard along with my Physio and had found my hamstrings have been like rock – now they feel all loose and I no longer feel like I’m walking like John Wayne!
Swimming has always been my happy place. Somewhere I can get in and work without much mental effort so the brain drifts off all over the place – planning, working through problems, even just counting is quite therapeutic. This morning’s swim was just what I needed.
