Thursday I took an hour off work and spent it at max effort in the lake, the water was nice at 14.3c though it was rather patchy.
I average 3km an hour open water and 3.6km per hour in a 25 m pool. Today I was pleased to cover 3346m in the hour. Sometimes I get hung up on time in the water, especially when schedules and time are tight. I should learn to recall the quote from the absolute gent that is Mr Nick Adams "it's not just about how long you are in the water, it's what you do whilst you are in there"
Don't let the pool cheat you .... Enjoy
