Day 25 - I'm A Mer-Man!

I really enjoyed today's swim session, the pool was pretty quiet and I was focused on the job as I went with a planned set in hand.It wasn't a hard set, but it was enough for me to do in the hour. My wife came with me to and she blasted out a session of about 2700 meters I don't know how she does it but she makes it look VERY easy!

My swimming has improved and I'm finding it a lot easier to swim the lengths and a lot easier to do the 100 meters, we all had to start somewhere but there is no looking back for me. On my final 50 meters I had my first cramp attack in my legs, thank god it was in the shallow end otherwise i would have sunk to the bottom, never to be seen again.

I was thinking my times are getting quicker as doing tumble turns with no issues anymore... I think I'm turning into a MER-MAN...

Back on the road tomorrow ...
