Swimming day 434 - Wednesday 29th February 2012 (leap year)
Come on, push yourself! Get up Starr, get working! What is this a play ground!! Move move move!!! Swimming boot camp with Big Bob; tough as it gets!
6.45am at Falmer and 7am in the outside pool. A grey morning, but warm in the air and by the time we finished a bright blue sky. 70 minutes of non stop pool lengths and sprints; about 2000 metres in total with no break. As tough as it is first thing in the morning having had no sleep and a child throwing up all over you during the night, a swim like this with Bob is brilliant. It really challenges and pushes you to the limit. I certainly think that maybe food or drink before the swim would make me go faster, but even as it is I kept up with Bob most of the time and hopefully challenged him as much as he challenged me.
Tomorrow the sea calls.
