Fire alarms and exercise

Hurrah for considerate testing of fire alarms! This morning, ours went off at 7:15. Now I know most people will strongly disagree with me on this (given that we're all students) but I really don't consider 7:15 to be that unsociable an hour. Better that than 4AM anyway. So following that, I decided that as I was not going to get to sleep I would embark on my fitness drive, which I've been on about since getting here but I contracted fresher's flu and so that's been my excuse for not having started it. Until now. After half a mile in the pool (32 lengths) in 20 minutes, which is a pretty lame time, I feel pretty worn out to say the least! Mostly it's my legs being out of shape (which feel like jelly) and my respiratory system being really out of shape (because I still have remenants of freshers flu and I haven't used them hard in over a year). Still, I'm pretty irritated that I'm not yet up to swimming my usual mile in 35 minutes or so, and also that I feel so dead afterwards. More training needed I feel… Why is getting/being fit so much work?!?
