The continuing quest of Binge Swimmer to take swimming seriously, (but of course not too seriously) Having failed miserably in 2012 and crashed and burned in 2013, my aim for 2014 is unsurprisingly; To swim the equivalent of a mile a day, (that's a little under 590,000 metres for the metrically challenged amongst you)

You might have gleaned that I was dipping out of the idea of 2 swims today. There were only 3 of us at the pool for this morning's sesh when I arrived I left Bill and Ben (Barbara really but Ben sounds better) swimming and set out to try and atone for last night's feebility (I've just made that word up).
About half way through the warm up Synchro Dad and the Fairy Snow Baby turned up, and I stopped to brief them on where I was.
The FSB proclaimed he wanted a doss session, and off he went, 1000m kick a doss? Synchro Dad and I decided that we wanted to do some pull. Me because I'm inherently lazy and anything for an easy life, and Synchro Dad cos he was going on a long bike ride in Yorkshire. (Who said we're not a cosmopolitan lot)
Anyway between us we came up with the following session, not sure what it really did for me, but it took me over the 100,000 yards mark for the month and toosmart watch told me at the end of the work out that "fitness and fat burning improving" won't argue with that.
