It's been a very busy week, lots going on with college and other things...I still managed to put in a decent number of metres though, a little under my target but I'm happy enough with it for my first week back swimming properly. It's been nice to get back into the pool and push myself...the whole lane swimming thing is driving me crazy already though...I have yet to find a quiet time at the pool that works well for me. It's really annoying when I'm trying to get lengths done in a particular time and people are in the way!! And I'm certainly not a particularly fast swimmer by any means...but I know that and I make sure to let people who are faster than me go ahead of me whenever they catch up with me. Why can't everyone just do that?!! There's nothing more annoying than a person swimming breaststroke slowly up the fast lane and blocking up the whole thing for people who are trying to put in a training session. And I'm finding that my college swimming pool quite often takes over the slow lane for swimming lessons or aqua aerobics so that means that the other two are even busier than usual. Oh well...enough of my rant, I guess I just need to find a quieter time in the day to put in my lengths. A task for this week!
