I did! I went to the gym last night!
It was GREAT. I managed my goal of 20 laps quite easily. The pool is only 20m long so that's just 400m which probably doesn't seem like much. I plan to increase slowly and hopefully get to the point where I am swimming a couple of kilometres.
Earlier in the day Little Guy and I went to buy the compulsory bathing cap. It was so hot I got quite sunburned on my arms. But by 6pm we had torrential rain and thunder. I'd left my bike by the gate ready to go .... and I still did, rain and all.
I feel good today, a little bit stiff, it's been a long while since I swam laps. I am looking forward to going again tonight.
