I’m going to be doing a 5k (4 laps) event in here today.
It’s the first event of the BLDSA season at Colwick Park.
What are you up to?
So I did it. In the end it was 5 laps, each just under 1km each. To be honest though I didn’t particularly enjoy it, I did the first couple of laps and then it hit me – just a general sense of “meh”.
Having thought about it a bit more though I’m pretty sure it was to do with being tired and not being well enough fueled up – as soon as I finished I couldn’t stop eating.
Other than that, it was a lovely day. It was great to meet some people that I’ve been chatting to on Facebook, not least Mark the author of this excellent blog. It was great to see John who cycled from Nottingham to watch a bit of the swim. It was satisfying to know that while I may have felt “meh” it wasn’t anything to do with my swimming, I felt strong and relaxed throughout. It was also incredibly rewarding to be told by a very experienced swimmer that I have a good stroke.
