Not such a good swim

Swimming must be the most lonesome activity...if it's for 2.5 hours. There's no one to talk to, no team mates to shout at, and it's a consistent activity of rowing your arms. But I like to be a bit on the lonely side. It's just ingrained in me. I keep thoughts to myself.

But sometimes, I would try to solve some programming or maths problem in my head.

But I have got to swim at least 6km, but at last, I only did 5km. Timing was out. It actually rained quite heavily, prompting the life guard to order everyone out. So, the whole swim was not a continuous one.

I have to go through this, to make sure i could at least finish the 6.5km swim. I don't wanna get stuck in the middle of the sea with leg cramps or fatigue.

However, the pool is only open for like 2.5 hours, which is the max I did go.

Swimming speed is still ok, but sluggish a bit. Not like the other 2 fellows, blasting away like fishes.

But on the positive side, I still can swim on after 5km. Not really that tired. :)

I agree swimming can be very lonely, quite boring too in the pool, lap after lap. I often will loose count bcos I start to think about lots of things. Hoping one day a smart company will come up with a waterproof MP3 player, I'll be first in line to buy it....
