swim sunday #8
 Target total this week: 435
Lengths swum this week: 0!
Total lengths swum: 384 (51 behind target)

I'd need to swim 106 lengths this week to meet next week's target. Gulp!
This really wasn't my fault this week.  Our usual swimming baby-sitter was stranded on Islay by the bad weather, then I was ill (and I checked with my consultant the other week who told me that I should rest and not swim when I am feeling rubbish) and then I was out test-driving and buying a car, which had to take precedence as a one-off big decision/job.  But next week I'm going to get back on track and make up at least some of that deficit.  The game is not lost!

I got my new car yesterday.  The journey back was really about as bad as it could be - first time on the motorway, in the dark, in post-football traffic, in torrential rain - but I totally did it!  Well, except the parking when I got home, which my dad had to do for me.  Ha!  I'm now too scared to go out in the car for fear I'll never get it back in a parking space.  But it's very exciting and being forced out of my comfort zone that way for my first journey has done wonders for my driving confidence.  I love my new car!  I might even drive to the pool later :)
