This week I chickened out of the outdoor pool – it was snowing after all! – in favour of the slightly warmer indoor pool. Feeling a bit more confident I set myself a goal of 50 lengths – I smashed it! I always find the first half of my swim feels fairly tough and I have no idea how I'll make my target, but after hitting the half-way mark everything becomes easier. I got to 50 and just carried on – hello 60! One thing I didn't quite manage was a few front crawl lengths. This is still way too sore on my ankle. I'm working on some strengthening exercises so hopefully next week I'll manage a few cheeky front crawl lengths.
Next week's goal: I see your 60 lengths and I raise it to 70!
