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)

Where's Godzilla when you need him?
Where does all the time go? This weekend started off pretty well with a trip to the cinema on Friday night... Seeking a sophisticated and cultured evening we ended up at the Handmade Burger Company (well it's one up from Domino's Pizza) and as the movie choice was pretty limited..... Godzilla.
Secretly quite enjoyed it though, as a pretty good friday night movie when you can unplug your brain and just marvel at the special effects.
I also quite like the idea that there is a gigantic monster all set to come and save us from MUTO's which led me to ponder on whether or not he would also save us from Evil Mutant Swim Coaches?
And if he really would protect innocent swimmers from EMSC's where was the 100m tall monster when you needed him, like at Consett this afternoon when EMSC one point zero laid this demanding little set on us.
You might've guessed that the 100's were meant to be progressive and although I couldn't quite gauge the 70%, 80% or 90% malarky I pretty much managed to swim each set on average faster.
On the whole not brilliant times, but signs that I am beginning to be able to pick up the pace. I was quite chuffed with them particularly because Consett pool (at 33m ) is pretty horrible to train in, can't wait till we get the new 25 metre pool next year.
