I went to the coast for my holidays and swam exactly twice. It’s almost torture to be walking near the ocean for so long and not be able to swim in it.
It has been a while since the last time I swam in the ocean and it was really nice. I had forgotten how much salt there is and how well you float on the water. I was able to swim for much longer than I usually can. It did get me in a bit of trouble however when I swam in an area I shouldn’t have. The life guard was busy blowing his horn I just kept swimming totally oblivious. Lucky I didn’t get hit by a boat.
Back now and I can definitely feel the lack of practice in my shoulders. Ouch. I was pushing myself hard, but I wasn’t able to break 20 seconds again. Although I am not sure as I kept having problems with my watch. It is really not well suited for timing.
I don’t know if you have the problem, but when I try to press the stop button I tend to accidently press the split button. Sometimes I even press the stop button and then the split button which deletes my time. I think it is getting time to buy a new watch.
