I did not want to stop swimming, and wanted to check whether I could double my usual these days distance. I did not care much about the style and speed, I just wanted to move forward in water, because nothing better waited for me outside on this emotionally excruciating day.

264 length (25 yards), 6 km total, in almost 3:07 (187 minutes). Six kilometers should constitute 4 swimmer's miles. First 200 I made in 2:20, first 5 km - in 2:35 (155 minutes).

Compared to the similar distance swims in the ocean, where the main problem was dropping of the body temperature by the third hour despite keeping the same speed (more or less), swimming in pool for so long irritated my skin. I inhaled too much chlorine! There also was a need to change lanes to give the space for team training, and the constant turning became annoying.

The great thing was to see the pool with lights after darkness, it was fun to swim towards a black cross on the wall with two lamps on the sides.

The thinking man must oppose all cruel customs no matter how deeply rooted in tradition and surrounded by a halo. When we have a choice, we must avoid bringing torment and injury into the life of another, even the lowliest creature; to do so is to renounce our manhood and shoulder a guilt which nothing justifies.
