Sounds like an interesting day, Pammie! Good suggestions for books! I'm surprised no-one else mentioned Cerutty and Van Aaken.

Straycelt - well done on the Movember. Back in the 70's (Oh God, he's on about the decade that fashion forgot...again!) I had the full Dave Bedford set of 'tash, 'boards and frizzed (natural..honest) hair.....and of course minimalist running shoes (addidas SL72s)......was I cool, or what?

Lively session at the club, as I can't resist the challenge of chasing after people who are better than me. About 7M fartlek - left for dead on the short sharp stuff but.

Yesterday's lyrics "A town called Malice" by The Jam
Today, no idea.

LMH. There was definitely no miscounting. Even at 16 lengths I was a minute down. I put this down to the stroke improvements that I have been embedding. It's far less thrashy and has more side to side roll. There's better symmetry as a result. I'm reaching further up the pool and generally using less energy. However, it's now blatantly clear that I'm not trying hard enough, either with the amount of water I'm trying to grab and push back, or the stroke rate which is quite lazy.
In running terms I'm doing a very gentle jog. Adding another 50 lengths would hold no fear even at this stage. One thing that was quite odd yesterday, after 75 lengths I seemed to relax and get a bit of feel for the water.

Bother, look at the time. No run completed.

Tut tut blisters...stop apologising for the things....I wish I could swim.....it'll all be gloriously clear in the morning. Tri definitely beyond me.  More fun at the gym in the morning where they'll try and stretch the tightest hamstrings they have ever seen
