Yesterday I went for a swim for the first time since Christmas. The last time I went (on the 21st December), I managed 1200m, with a time of 22 minutes to swim the first 1000m. Yesterday I could only manage 1000m, and it took me 24 minutes. So I lost two minutes and 200m… Christmas lunch was not kind on me.
Note that the above times are pretty slow — I take lots of little breaks as I swim; I’m still not fit enough to go non-stop for more than about 400m. On the plus side, this means I still have plenty of room for improvement! Watch this space etc.
