My 6km swim race is this Sunday, looking foward to it. Latest news on the lake temperature - currently 20.1 Celsius, so neoprene wetsuits are optional. I'm thinking about going without as I've not been practicing in mine and quite honestly I hate swimming in it.
Columba, no, surprisingly I don't get bored swimming, I really enjoy it and I stick to the crawl stroke almost always except for cool-down when I usually swim backstroke. Not allowed to do breaststroke because of the frog kick, it's bad for my replacement hip. I was told never to do it after my op.
TE, my car has to go in to be worked on too but I couldn't get an appt until 11 June, they are so busy! I took the car over for them to check out a problem with the dashboard lights, the emergency lamp for the airbag keeps lighting up and I also get an accoustic signal. The chief mechanic who tested it said there is a problem with the relay, the car can still be driven ok, just that the airbag is inactive and won't deploy in case of accident! Sounds dangerous to me, although of course I don't plan on having an accident.
