Oh dear, see what happens when I don’t have a goal? A week of swimming, followed by a holiday, followed by busy time, followed by [etc etc] and before I know it it’s September – and the last post was in May! I could have had a May to September romance in this time (that’s what that term means, right)!
In the interim, I suppose I haven’t done nothing! I have:
- taken a series of Japanese classes!
- watched the Olympics!
- Picked up a long abandoned cardigan I am knitting and got back to work on the ratted thing!
- Eaten a lot of…. toast?
Swimming wise, I have had a summer of South London Lidos! I have visited Brockwell, Charlton and Tooting Lido. And in each one, I can’t have done more than a couple of hundred metres amongst the general floating around.
The last time I went to Brockwell Lido it was quite odd – it tasted very SALTY! The pool had a huge deposit of dirt about three quarters on the way to the deep end where the pool must have a little valley down there, causing a large brown water area. It was fine and I didn’t dispute the water was fine to swim in, but the salt! Oy.
To get back on the horse, I have started the sign up process for the Aspire Channel Swim, 22 miles in a pool in 12 (I think?) weeks. The sign up isn’t finished, as they don’t consider it complete until a justgiving page is completed… we’ll see…
