Workout Four – Swimming

25th May 2013 / 16:13 / Bannatynes Gym, Ayr / Swimming Pool

After this morning’s success on the treadmill, I decided that a  dip after work was just the remedy to ease my aching muscles. With the blistering (for Scotland, anyway) heat, it was, as I suspected cooling. However, I am really feeling the aches now. Tomorrow is prime for a rest day so I can keep working on Monday.

The swim on the whole was good, a little faster than last time, and overall less exertion than my first pool session.

Workout Two – Swimming

24th May 2013 / 13:15 / Bannatynes Gym, Ayr / Swimming Pool

For a relaxing day to stretch out my muscles from yesterdays beginning, I hit the pool today. I went through a period of swimming most days, so have a pretty decent stroke and stamina in the pool.

I originally intended to do only half hour today. However, mid swim I decided that I was more eager to reach 1km. I used to manage 1km in thirty minutes at a steady breaststroke, but taking it a little more easily today, I realised I wasn’t going to hit that target. As thirty minutes passed by, I was on 900m, and decided that I would continue for another fifteen minutes, not really to “push” myself but to make up that extra calorie count.
