First in the pool - love being the one to ripple that smooth water :-)

Swam half a mile at 1745.

Didn't manage to get to the pool first thing or at lunchtime, but just before teatime I realised that the pool was open so I persuaded the kids that they wanted to swim too and off we went.

More people than usual in the pool this morning - maybe signifying the end of the summer holidays and the start of getting back to the 'normal' routine.

Swam half a mile before breakfast.

Given the length of my to do list for the rest of the day, it's a good think I got the time for myself done and dusted first thing...

Swam 1 km (40 lengths of our local pool) before breakfast this morning. (I'm swimming instead of running at the moment because I sprained my foot on holiday, and it's not quite right yet.)

I was very pleased with this swim. It's many years since I've swum regularly - I used to swim a half mile, kilometre or mile 2-3 times a week before I had DS (in fact I swam a respectable half mile the day DS was due, then decided I'd better stop because having my waters break in the public swimming pool wouldn't be too good). After the kids came along, getting to the pool got much harder, and going running became a more efficient way of using the restricted amount of time available for fitness training. I really missed it, though, especially in the summer. I'm a good swimmer at one stroke - breaststroke - and I love that smooth, sleek feeling of powering forward through the water.

The only problem this morning was the same old: when the pool is divided for lane swimming, I'm faster than most in the medium lane, which means lots of overtaking, but just a bit too slow for all the crawl swimmers in the fast lane. However, that said, one of the reasons I'm pleased about this morning's swim is that I still have this problem, despite not having swum 'properly' for so long. So really I'm not complaining!

I really should learn to swim crawl, though.

Swam half a mile in the local indoor pool.

After swimming in the Baltic Sea and various Swedish lakes over the last couple of weeks, the water felt far too warm!
