New Years resolutions part the first

So one of my new years resolutions is to go swimming at least once a week.(bob ponders making stop starting posts with So one)
So far this year i have managed this. I went with johnckirk to Holmes Place in Croydon on sunday and today i went to the Purley Pool all my own.(arnt i grown up?)

Now i have to decide which one is the better choice for long term use. Although of course this all depends on the job situation.

Holmes Place

Pluses:-
close
sauna
Good facilities
free shampoo and conditioner

Minuses:-
expensive
lanes not really wide enough for me if other people are using them.
temptation to go the dog and bull afterwards.

Purley Pool

Pluses:-
cheap
25m pool
Lots of room ( although there were only 4 people using the pool.)

Minuses:-
Bus ride away
bad facilities (obviously still a council pool even though another company runs it)


All in all for the time being the purley pool make more sense until i get a job. although the holmes place is a lot nicer and closer.
Also swimming 20/25m lengths is lot more tiring than 7m lengths. then again i suppose thats the point.
