As mentioned on the "outdoorsy sofa" my wife does a bit of open water swimming and inspired by her doing the Great North Swim a few weeks back I'm going try and take the plunge. Luckily there is a club bear me where I can swim in a lake during the summer and who put on low key events.... ...but before that I need to train up a bit (in the pool) so I can swim a reasonable distance without stopping. So today I did the first session of the 0 to 1650 training plan. A kinda c25k for swimming that aims to have me swimming a mile in one go in six weeks time. It went well. Swam 750m today (not in one go, but with minor and limited planned pauses as per the plan) and I feel good yay. Anybody else doing (or done) anything similar?
