For the past two weeks I have been working on building stamina by doing more and more swimming. This has gone surprisingly well. Back at the end of August I was struggling to manage 20 lengths of the local pool. Yet last week I did six days in a row and swam four lots of 60 lengths and 2 lots of 80 lenghts for a week's total of 400 lengths. That's about 5 miles swum!
This week I have focused a little more on speed and yesterday broke my personal best for 60 lengths by over 5 minutes. This was extremely tiring though.
So well on track. I am away in France for most of the next two weeks but am taking my gym kit so I can either go jogging on the country roads near the house or can go to the rather swanky pool complex in St Jean. When I get back, I am planning to move to a combination of swimming and running.
