Couple of hours of gym/swim. The gym bit, as usual, totally loathsome. Having to listen to industrial music at maximum volume and the trash tabloid music the gym regals us with still overpowers it, at least on the quieter bits. Yes, I know, I'll have to get noise cancelling cans. As I understand it, though, those are very good for constant humming noises like ariplane engines or traffic, but not noises with spikes in frequency or volume. The swim bit, though, was lovely. The building of the KTSC is actually beautiful and there is something of the ship to it. The main pool hall makes me think of the inside of the Battlestar Galactica hangar decks, only done much better. Shame about the trashy music in the gym.

I miss swimming and most of the "local" facilities I have seen just put me off but may have to try Kentish Town. Good on you to keep it up! vero

Yeah, come over. It'd be good to see you. Er, are you going to see this comment at all?

You pool sounds way cooler than mine! I want to swim in Galactica's hanger!

I've taken to swimming 2-3 nights a week at KTSC, the Willes pool is just gorgeous, and if I go there late enough after work I can usually get a whole lane to myself.

I thought I had replied to this but clearly I never did. I'm on a concessionary membership on account of being ancient (and skint) and (I think) I can only go off-peak. There are times in the daytime when it gets much quieter as well and sometimes I can go on those times.... haven't entirely figured it out et.

How are you? Haven't seen you since.... your birthday, actually, I think.
