Swimming will never be the same again!

That,s what I said to Mrs Cott yesterday after our session in the 50m Claremont Pool.

Mrs Cott has now swum a mile, 1600 m non- stop, twice which is a PB.

I did 2700m non-stop which is my PB.

It,s the wonderful warm weather and wide swim lanes with at most maybe 1 or 2 fellow swimmers.

Maybe it is also Paul Newsome,s chortling laugh and strident instructions to his squad swimmers too that encourages us.

Since the first post on 18th Dec we have maintained regular pool swimming, Mrs Cott averaging 6km a week and me 12km. This is much more than in England where our facilities are modest and there are other distracting activities.

The benefits of “garbage yardage” are becoming apparent and that is that the last few laps one does when very tired are really very important indeed.

This is what the drill seargeant says when you are dying from doing hundreds of pushups that the last few are the ones that do you good.

With swimming, that is because you need to engage the brain in helping you keep swimming by telling you to minimise drag and improve hand angles etc..

Last week we nipped along to Sorrento Beach and paddled in the 300 m shark enclosure which was enjoyable and next Tuesday we hope to bus down to Coogee to do the same.

Next Monday Paul Newsome has drafted me into a squad session. I expect he is fed up watching someone swimming like a dustbin next to his elites for hours. Maybe I am swimming a bit more like a dugong now after the garbage yardage I have been churning out.
