This is the post excerpt.
So, long time no see! And no sea 🌊 either. I’ve been out of action with a chesty cough since Easter really, and getting back into things has been an uphill struggle for various reasons, laziness being one and not the least! But, it’s going, I’ve done the pool a few times and will be… Continue reading It’s just like starting over…
Not really! Just a quick post after a few sea dips sans wetsuit over the Easter break, and I think we’re getting somewhere. No problem with acclimatisation (April seas) and practising front crawl in the sea *bubble bubble breath* Need to get back to the pools though, after a hectic period at work, school holidays,… Continue reading Feeling the cold?

However I was saved from my lazy self by my daughter waking up before 6. Knowing any chance of me getting back to sleep… Continue reading Pool swim #4 – losing momentum already? Really?
Part of the idea of this diary is to record achievements, however small.
