I stepped into the pool this morning ready to rock and in the next half hour learned three important things.
- I need to switch on and set my FitPro 2 in the changing room, before I take my glasses off, otherwise I can't see what I'm doing. (I had to leave it on the poolside with my towel this morning) The Finis Duo worked first time and was excellent!
- My playlist needs some adjustments. Leonard Cohen might be fine in the car (I simply copied the playlist from an old USB stick) but Bird on a Wire doesn't really work in the pool. I found the best tracks were upbeat pop, Motown and the occasional bit of Dean Martin (though this works better than this!) It's also not a good idea to even think of singing along, especially when The Beatles' Help starts up.
- There's a Spotify app on my FitPro2, which means I could probably have loaded a playlist onto that and bought a waterproof wireless headset instead of the Duo, but you know, I think that might have been just one clever trick too many!
I foresee hours of entertainment - before I even get in the water.
