5 laps – 60m
Yesterday’s run at dusk and the night’s weight training took its toll this morning.
Been planning to do a run this morning since there is no more Saturday morning Mendaki tuition class, but my body refused to get up.
I know, it’s just excuses. 😛
But since I’ve made plan for a swim at my friend’s residence this morning, I know I had to force myself out of my lazy cocoon.
My last swim was on the 5th of August which is more than two months ago.
I was a bit apprehensive that this old pakcik may have forgotten the techniques learned.
So with a bit of trepidation I started and was quite pleased that I still remember how to swim.
My aim today was to try to simulate swimming half a lap; 50 meters, in an Olympic-size pool.
So my plan was to swim 30 meters, which is half a lap in my friend’s condo pool, turn around, and immediately continue on the return half lap.
But sad to say, in the return lap, I stopped with a quarter distance to go.
Certainly felt disappointed as this mean I am still unable to swim 50 meters straight without resting.
Nonetheless, I continued swimming another 4 laps I think, with the last lap being a lung-bursting sprint lap.
And to end it all, my friend commented that my legs are sinking while I was swimming.
But don’t all fat hippos do that when they swim?
