Man. What with one thing and another I hadn't been swimming in about a month. And it shows. Badly.
I stepped into the pool today to start with a bit of light swimming, figuring I'd rev up to about a kilometer and a half in the 45 minutes I had available to me. Yeah. Uh-huh.
I managed to get to about .75 Km in 30 minutes, which isn't terrible, it's just a huge step down from where I was a month ago. I had to stop to let my arms stretch out as it felt like I had really strained something in my shoulders. Everything is fine now, but it took twenty minutes of stretching to get it that way.
In my defense, there were 20 or so Jr. High School kids there today chopping up the water and getting in the way. Yup. It's all the kids' fault. Not mine. Not mine at all.
