I’m surprised at how quickly my body is responding to exercise. This morning, I managed to get through 50 laps of the pool. I was only aiming for 32, but by the time I got there, I figured I had more left in me. Only laps 41-48 were breaststroke, too. I always enjoyed breaststroke more than the other strokes, but I do find it a much more relaxing stroke, with much less effort needed. I was struggling to do four consecutive laps of freestyle coming up to lap 40, but I could quite happily swim eight laps of breaststroke without pausing for breath. 50 laps in about 40 minutes is reasonable, I guess. I’d like to get up to swimming a mile every morning, which I guess would be 70 laps. I think the pool is 75 feet, which is about 22 metres. We’ll see if I’m there by the end of the week 🙂
In other news, I saw a blue jay yesterday. So pretty! Tonight, I’m planning on going firefly hunting with Ekaterin. Should be fun.
