I got up at 5:15am to get to the river in time for a swim.  It was a fantastic swim - in for 40 min, followed by bacon sandwiches, but I would have liked the extra time in bed.

There are videos of yesterdays swim on FB if anyone is interested.  It shows how scenic the river is, especially as the sun is going down.  You can also see how fast the current was - my mate who took the video estimated it at 1.5m/sec

I love swimming, especially when followed by bacon sandwiches

Bookie, if you are up for the 24 hour swim in April, the entry form is available although entries don't open for a couple of weeks.  I've entered the solo, but you can do a relay of as many people as you want.  A lot of people enter teams of 6.  Each leg is 1 mile, up to a total combined distance of 24 miles.

Bacon sandwiches always seem to taste better after a swim  

I'd love to do the 24 hour swim Caz, I'm just a little concerned about getting cold. I don't cope well with cold, I have a wonky thermostat! It's also the same weekend as the swimathon, and I'd had a sort of plan to do a 5K swim on each of the three days. I suppose I could do the 24 hour swim one day, then the swimathon the next day or two depending on how I feel... decisions decisions!

I hope H feels better soon. It must be rotten for the poor little chap (((hugs)))

I have a sore throat and a headache. I won't complain though

Wait for me Caz, I can now swim 200m .

Sarah, if you get a team of 6 then you have 5 hours to warm up between each swim, and you are allowed wetsuits if you wish.  I'm sure there wil be hot drinks and soup too.

That's a huge improvement DS.  Well done

Hehe, thanks Caz.  I've been working on my breathing technique and I'm trying to do a 6 week program to get me up to a mile. I'm relying on breaststroke at the moment and next month I've got a session with a TI coach to look at my front crawl.  I'm very slow but very happy to be moving forward at last.

(p.s., I've sent you a message re. Legends)

*Offers up throat lozenge and mops Bookie's fevered and uncomplaining brow*

I have some nice cheese.

Got the message DS

I am contemplating cheese on toast for dinner.

Or maybe I should cook a proper meal so that I can have the left overs tomorrow.  I won't feel like cooking tomorrow

I love cheese on toast, it reminds me of Sunday tea in my childhood. Cheese on crumpets, pickled onions & beetroot, all on our knees in front of Last of the Summer Wine. Happy days!

Looks like local Parkrun will start in March so I've time to get myself sorted.

I told Bear that I was skinny dipping tomorrow.

He said that he would like to try my muffins.

What an awful cross post.  He was talking about baking!

Good morning from the Dawn Bubble *waves*

Hot and cold drinks, freshly toasted crumpets, a cheese selection and fresh fruit have been laid out on the table next to the nice chair.
