Binge’s Late Last Lap

Monthly Total 76,850 metres

The start of the last week of the infernal February Fitness Challenge; by now of course every fibre of my body is hurting and the only thing keeping me going is the fact that I only have 6 days left, although trying to cover 24k in less than a week is a little daunting.

Today’s been a bit of a disaster, the effort of trying to raise my body out of bed was so great I was a bit later than anticipated for my swim this morning, and this evening I missed the warm up because of a prior commitment overrunning.

finding-dory-movieIt was a quick 50 free and then straight into the main set, what is the fascination with 150’s?  I seem to have swum zillions of them in the last 3 weeks.

There was a definite element of garbage yardage today, as I dived in to start my warm up this morning there was little thought in what I was going to swim and I was focussed on simply keeping on swimming.
