That would need 320 lengths of my local pool. I'd lose count!

Yeah, mine does as well thinking about it, but the swimming mode is weird (every time I turn it on, I really struggled to turn it off - it disables the buttons and the screen apart from a very specific combination, that took me about 30 minutes to get right when I last tried)

If I just let fitbit detect it automatically it's fine. If I start recording it (to add it to strava is when the issues start)

I read that and thought "the pool is 100m long?!"

Haha

Ten miles done today. I'll get round Cardiff half, probably land dead on 1-50.

I might sign up for one this year or alternatively I might try to just go out and run one myself. I honestly don't know if I would enjoy the run more if it was an event like that and I've never felt the need to make it official before I feel as though I've passed a particular milestone. Plus it's like twenty odd quid.

I did do 30k last weekend which was further than I've run before. Took it pretty easy and it was mostly okay although I did start feeling a little strange towards then end, I think I would have struggled had I tried keep going for another hour or more. But I don't know if that was because I need to look at nutrition and hydration a bit more closely for longer distances like that or simply because I'm not up to it yet.

Going west from where I ended is boggy marshy moor land and a couple of fast flowering rivers. I'd also need to round out East Anglia a bit more!

Cardiff half race report: 14km good, 7km awful.

We take these feelings and reshape them.

Cardiff owes me 17 minutes. Project 99 is go. Results October.

In a bit under seven weeks I have two races an hour apart. A 5k and a 10k. I think I'll train for the 10k and use the 5k as a warm up even though I am not the fastest, there's still bound to be traffic at the begining of the 5k and then harder to make up the time afterwards. I less it is clear then I'll fuck it all up on the 5k and be dead for the 10k. Who knows? Plans, eh?

First session back at the gym since before lockdown. Surprised myself by doing pretty much what I could do 2 years ago! Think I’ll be creaky tomorrow though.

I went again at lunch! My legs hurt immediately on the bike and now it feels like I’ve been punched in the side of my tits.
