it wasn't too bad there were only 3 or 4 in there and they were up in the corner near the entrance. it was a bit chilly though, i had to get out after a while as i was getting cold.

i went on a really hot day there were hundreds of them. one bunch (i realised after about 8 lengths) were swimming in front of me deliberately. i also noticed that ironically, they were sh*te breast strokers and it was too deep to stand. so i swam straight over them a couple of times and kicked uneccessarily hard and they stopped doing it. unfortunately they didn't drown.

thats the technique i use for old people in my lane at the public baths. they had it right in logans run(except maybe a bit older than 40, seeing as i am there soon)
bring back the sparten values, send the weak and old to the local pool and let triathletes practice mass start techniques over them. like the samurai practicing their sword strokes on criminals.

you ought to try running and swimming in Kingston, there's millions of them here, must be the chav capital of England.

Fortunately the chav areas are quite well defined so you can save up a bit of energy to make sure that you can, if necessary put in a bit of sprint..

Does the Lido close for the winter? And can someone tell me what the opening times are.

The open water venue that I swim at will close in a few weeks and I'm looking for an alternative.
