Just been for a quick ( well mediocre ) swim in my lunchtime. Still struggling and feeling a little breathless in the pool. Managed to do 20 lengths ( 500m ) in 13:40. I know its not particularly fast but I think I need to build my stamina up again and grabbing upto 1/2 hours swimming twice a week in my lunch hour might do it. When term finishes in June, I should be able to make it 4 times a week as the opening hours change.
Have got some open water training sessions lined up with Preston Tri starting next monday night as well, scared, but looking forward to that. First time in a wet suit outdoors.
Does anyone else get headaches when they’ve finished swimming in the pool, I always seem to get a headache as soon as I get out of the pool ? Maybe I’m just weird? Not sure if its because I’ve over exherted myself ? But I never get them after a run or a ride ?
