50 whole metres, what a treat!


what an unexpected treat!

I went to the pool, simply for a steady swim. Just because. When I got there I saw a sign – Southland swim champs start today. When I got to poolside- wow!

I haven’t ever seen the pool opened to 50m before, how exciting.

Even if you share the lane with a slow old breast stroker you never see the other person, the lane is so long!

I was so excited – it makes swimming way easier when you have to turn only half as much! It also gives you time to focus on your technique and get into a rhythm, plus, a ‘couple more laps’ is twice as far, so you end up swimming further! 🙂

They open it up 6-8am on Saturdays only, so I discovered.

Hmmm may have to swim on a Saturday!
