Just swam 40 lengths to wash away the weekend excesses.
Many folk find the repetative nature of swimming a bore. Which I can understand.   I used to race so when I swim I still focus on small things to improve my stroke: angle of my hands, feet, keeping my fingers closed etc.
It occurs to me that my approach to painting  is the same. By repeating the same images I become aware of small variations which absorb my interest.
