Today I had the choice of a rather long walk to a 50m pool or 15 minutes to a restored Victorian 25 yard pool. I took the easy option and tested the Dalry Swim Centre. It's clearly been worked on extensively but retains the iron supports and layout.

In view of the sub-23m lengths I had hoped for a good pace, hopefully better than that in a 25m pool earlier in the week. It was better but only by 1 second! Anyway, at 3:09 per 100m there is a gradual improvement and the 3 minutes might not be too far away.
