Swimming progress

It’s possible people are following along so an update on progress to getting to swimming 400m in under nine minutes. I’ve shaved 30 seconds off my benchmark time. Still over a minute to go.

The feeling of swimming is so much better so rather than get grumpy with myself that my time is not under ten minutes yet I’m going to celebrate that I feel confident to tackle pretty much any distance in the pool.

Another bonus: I can do more consecutive pull ups at the gym. I think the swimming has help that.
