Lovely Thursday swimming

Very enjoyable...

300 or so warmup (it is post-holiday layoff, everyone is hanging around at the end of the lane and pondering their lack of fitness, we had some long rests between repeats too!).

4 x 150 (25 kick, 50 pull, 75 swim)
4 x 100 (25 catchup + 25 swim x 2)
3 x 100 (25 kick underwater, 75 swim)
200 cooldown (I did 3 x breast down fly back, and then a couple lengths of backstroke at the end--I am afraid I am going to forget how to do those other strokes if I don't start doing 'em again properly in the near future!)

Swimming is the best thing...

[Ed. Swimming is the best thing, except that I always want more of it--I'm all, like, now I want the second hour! Swimming is also the best thing, except that entirely through my own fault--drifting to center, still not used to swimming clockwise rather than counterclockwise in the lane--I whacked someone with my hand, I hope they are not horribly injured, presumably someone would have said something if genuinely damaged, but I am still trying to decide whether the relevant part of my hand is just bruised or perhaps actually broken! Fortunately it does not hurt when it's in a relaxed position, just when I try and close my hand into a fist... Hmmm, I think it's a bit better, will hope for further improvement tomorrow...]

Lamenting lack of fitness ... 'tis the season!

Your hand is probably "just" deeply bruised. The last time I caught arms with someone the bruise was so deep it took two days to become visible. (Don't forget to ice it!)

P.S. Return to training usually starts with a lot of freestyle drills. Goes with LLoF. ;-)
