Size does matter

We went swimming yesterday and I re-timed my 400m for " a laugh". Hah. Not funny in the end. This time I was 26s slower! The differences; a pool that's 3m longer (so 20 lengths of 20m instead of 23.5 lengths of 17m); and a non-empty pool (i.e. having to overtake slowpokes who subsequently fill your gob with water as you're breathing in so you can't breathe at the right time and your whole body starts to scream a little for some oxygennowpls!). I can't believe that the latter made a huge difference, to be honest.

So. When I go swimming on Tuesday next week, I'll make the trip to the slightly further away (8 minutes from my desk instead of 2) Virgin gym in town and use their 25m pool and see what happens with that. In the mean time, I am mostly despondent and unhappy about it all.
