Eye happy

While I didn't get to the pool on the weekend, I did manage to splurge for new pair of goggles and bathers. I decided the gaping wasn't a great look. The goggles were an absolute pleasure, 1.6km down and they still didn't need emptying. Awesome. I went home with eyes free from chlorine sting.

Run: 39m | 6km | 06m 34s/km. Early morning run, there was a 6 involved in the time. That's pretty early for me. First run in a week was a river run. I struggled with the blisters that I'd got walking home last week and found new ones formed under and around those already there. Ugh.
Swim: 1600m | 35m | 02m 11s /100 meters. 3x 500m, 100m finger drag. The advantage of starting work early means that I can usually finish early. And thus I got to the pool before the after work rush. Still sharing a lane with 5 or so people, but no major hold ups. It's nice to know after a year of no swimming that I can still at the very least swim 500m non stop.


  1. Yay for new goggles! I think I need to invest in a new pair too!

  2. Finger drag is my favourite drill (yes, I know how sad that is!)
