So I just got back from my first swim in 10 months. I went a lane slower than I used to and just chilled with the Freds. It was fab.
Swimming - if it weren't for the running eyes, stinking skin and itchy hair afterwards - is great. You get a sort of all over body fatigue afterwards, like your muscles have been gently kneaded by a half-hearted osteopath. I might go again. I might, although I might go for a bike ride instead.
