Got up this morning to swim before work. Got dressed thinking “I don’t feel like it this morning. Shall I go after work instead? What am I doing this afternoon? What time would I be able to get to the pool? Will it be really busy? I should go now. Shall I go back to bed for an hour?” Found myself pulling my hoodie on with one arm and trying to take it off with the other!
Anyway, I went. I was slow, tired, my arms were achey, my elbows were sore so I allowed myself to just do 500m instead of this month’s morning target of 700m, thinking it’s better than not going at all. I was about 3s per length slower than my usual time. 😀 Once I got out I was berating myself for not staying in and doing the other 4 lengths to make the 700m, but I think I made the right choice
