Cyprus Training - Hot Pool Swim

First day of the holiday and after lying in the sun all day and chilling I thought I best get some training in.

It was hot.. Really hot so the only thing I could do was get a swim in. We've got a 20 meter pool at the resort and it's relatively quiet so I decided a simple set of:

5 x 200m & 2 x 500m

I managed to complete the first 1000m hassle free, pool to myself not a rubber ring in sight. After each 200 meters I did a one and a half minute recovery and set off again. I was lucky enough to borrow my mates Poolmate for holiday to try out, which is a good job really as I totally lost count on numerous occasions, to be fair I forget most times so it was nice to have the backup of the watch.

Then I started to 2 x 500's and it was like a pool party had erupted everyone wanted some pool action, well everyone being 4 people, and all 4 had to get in the way and I was completing "S" bends in the pool very annoying as they could see I was doing a lane swim, I was out the way as far as possible, well they didn't last long in the water and for the last 500 meter I was left alone to complete.

That was my first holiday session over and done with, it was hot, but I can see my run being even hotter tomorrow morning.

Best get the water intake up!
