Hey Minni!! sorry not around yesterday it was all about the running yesterday!
I have looked into the Channel swim its on the list but everything has its place! Next year I am swimming in Windemere in January with no wetsuit, now that will be a giggle! and I have just booked to swim Coniston end to end. If not next year then the year after I want to swim Windemere end to end.
I tried ear plugs Seren Nos but I can hear myself and totally puts me off!
Diva You do excel in something..... trying!! Sooo many people just give up or dont even bother!
Haha actually its the equivalent of a marathon.....only 6 miles! Sorry to disappoint!
It took me about 3 months before to do a full mile. I would say you need to be swimming regularly to start seeing results. I totally agree with Barry said drills are hard at first but do become so much fun!
The other thing about swimming groups is that we swim OW all through the year! You will find sometime soon you will be in the middle of a lake, looking around at the sun on the water, at the birds on the lake side and find you have a massive grin, feel so alive and wonder why it took you so long to find ow swimming!
