      So "treading" doesn't mean you "swim" in place? Whatever, tendons must be happy 😊

      Ha ha! yes, I should probably have stayed in place, but I did end up basically pool jogging which is treading and moving. I never have been one to use any aqua belt etc.

    Pretty easy swim. We had a bunch of thunderstorms so I was terrified that I wouldn't get the opportunity to get in and swim, so luckily they passed.

      Definitely wet and most definitely long - what a swim! I'm sure an uncrowded pool made this easier and more fun.

      I see. Asked because we used to do ca 200 m of slow swim with emphasised stretching to cool down physically and mentally. Was it necessary? I don't know, but I liked it, because it meant the easiest part of training.
