Thank Goodness for Swimming!

Location: Woodcock Sports Centre Swimming Pool, Aston University
Date: 13th October

5 x Front crawl length, 95% effort.

15-30 seconds rest between each length; each length took 20-25 seconds.

Total time: 5 minutes

Post Workout Nutrition: Six scrambled eggs - with a plum and cinnamon, 50 minutes later

When I need to do some intense exercise but my legs need rest (after this failed fell run at the weekend) and my upper body needs rest between BBS sessions, swimming always comes to rescue.

I tried a slightly different technique today, which I have updated in the web page about front crawl. It felt faster, more natural and less hard on my triceps.
