Swimming again

Yesterdays swim

3 x 2 lengths, gaspings after each set of 2
Jacuzzi 12 mins, waiting for lane to be free
1 x 8 lengths, gasping 🙂
Going to slow down a little now, and build up slowly, should be able to do long distances again soon.

I am going to have to work on my stroke technique as well, it’s completely gone. The fact that I am gasping and unfit means that I can’t breathe properly yet, but we’ll get there.

Visits to Gym – 4
Cost per Visit – €80

Sundays Swim

A bit delayed, but I’ve had a mental day.

1 x 6 lengths, major gaspings after each set of 2
Jacuzzi 10 mins
1 x 6 lengths, major gaspings after each set of 2

Current statistics

Weight – 26 stone or thereabouts
Visits to Gym – 3
Cost per Visit – €106.66

Also, on a public service note: in a swimming pool with 2 clearly marked and signed swimming lanes, it is NOT ok for you to sit in the middle of one of the aforementioned swimming lanes with your sprogs and play around – for 45 sodding minutes! There’s an entire half of the damn pool set aside for you!

Bloody hell, I don’t know. I maybe need to become a bit of a bastard and start saying something, but I just don’t want the aggro from these people.

Ah well.

Back in the Gym again

Took the plunge (literally) and joined the Gym in the Tower *sneeze* Hotel again. €320 for 6 months – this makes the third *sneeze* (possibly 4th) attempt at joining the gym I’ve made, and I think I went maybe 12 *sneeze* times in total over those three attempts, so it was mighty bloody expensive.

*sneeze*
*sneeze*

Think the chlorine is making me sneeze 🙂

Anyway, I’m going to keep track of progress here on the blog for those that are interested.

Session Report

25 m pool
1 x 4 lengths – gasping after each set of 2.
Jacuzzi 5 mins
1 x 4 lengths – another gasping session after each set of 2.
1 x 2 lengths – and that was enough.
Floated for about 5 minutes (magic – not often I get to feel weightless!)
Sauna 10 mins – lovely new sauna

Current statistics

Weight – 26 stone or thereabouts – I’ll try and get a more accurate figure when I can find a big enough machine
Visits to Gym – 1
Cost per Visit – €320 – It costs €10 for a single session in the pool, so my aim is to get this cost down below that before I have to renew.
