On Thursday night I went to Tollcross – I did Swim Session 4, but this time the 50m pool was split into 2 x 25m pools. So I swam width ways across it (25m across). There were only about 6 people in the tank I was in… ideal. Although I’m sure the pool tasted of liquorish again! Odd.
My plan was to cycle and run as well, but with the centre closing at 9pm, I just managed a swim and a cycle.

I was out of the pool around 8pm and went into the gym so that I could fit a 45 minute workout in. I used to cycle at the gym before, for an hour which burned plenty of calories – just another type of cardio to mix things about.
The cycle was hard work, and I was reading my book, which didn’t really aid concentration on my workout, but it was good to get the time to read anyway. I was aiming to cycle at above 80 rpm and kept it at that for most of it. A good place to start off as it should get easier next time. My cardio was fine throughout, I was just sweating profusely after the swim (not sure why that happens…)
