wow...there are a lot of hard-core sunday swimmers in googles and caps!
No way could I have made it in the fast lane today.
Another 40 done, 1120 done...
wahooooooooo 880 to go!
Have decided to work on the Chinese calender so 2010 doesn't really start until 14 Feb, so I have a bit more time. Phew.

So much nicer swimming in the much cheaper and slightly scuffier National Sports Centre!
I don't think an hour from eating cheese on toast and a few maltesers is enough time, the first few lengths were heavy going. Must remember to leave at least 2 hours :-)
Have rewarded myself, post swim with a chocolate pudding and icecream and the last few minutes of The Wizard of Oz...is that wrong?
920 to go....
eek...still feels a bit impossible, might have to stretch the deadline to Chinese New Year.

Today I learnt a few things at the pool
1) don't go at 6pm, as it is full of kids learning to swim who are much faster then me, and the lanes are chocka
2) when it says to take your outdoor footwear off, take socks off too, as the floor is basically wet - doh!
3) 1 in 4 adults can't swim...that was on a poster :-)
4) I am not really fast enough for the fast lane...I survived about 15 lengths and then down graded myself.
So 40 done...only 960 to go wahoooooooooo

So am finally back to the pool this week. Am a little scared as there are actually only 9 weeks of the year left, which means an average of 111.11111111 lengths a week. So basically I need to swim every other day pretty much and do 40 lengths a go....arse!
Has definitely become a challenge now!
