During the meeting I had the opportunity of telling Wayne how essential my complimentary David Lloyd membership is to my training regime, and of explaining the hours I am currently putting in. Impressed with what he heard, Wayne asked if I had access to the Vantage spa. When he heard that I did not, he promptly insisted that the facilities would do me good after such long workouts, and he kindly arranged for an upgrade to my membership.
Today I had the blissful opportunity of relaxing in the spa after an 8km (5m) swim. So far this week I have notched up 25km, and am aiming for 50km by the end of Sunday. Being able to relax in a quiet, private sauna, and reclining Jacuzzi for 15 minutes, having aching back and shoulder muscles soothed by the bubbles, was pure bliss.
I'm already looking forward to my next swim tomorrow... or at least looking forward to getting to the Vantage spa afterwards.
