swim one

July 17, 2006

Just been swimming. Pleasant for a few minutes and then BORING. Need a solution to that. Did 76 lengths in 30 minutes. The staff aren’t completely sure of the length of the pool, they said between 15 and 17 metres, so I’m going to plump for 16 metres. Which means 1,216 metres per 30 minutes, about 1.5 mph, or 1.3 knots. That seems to be about 280 calories, or 1.2 Mars Bars.

    You need a waterproof iPod case. Well worth the expenditure if you’re serious about swimming. On a good day, I can swim the whole of ‘London Calling’, thanks to my Oregon Scientific waterproof MP3. Not really recommended, as the radio can only pick up the godawful ILR station whose transmitter is just 100 metres from the pool.
