Had my first river swim for two years this evening, hot on the heels of my first sea swim in well over two years, last weekend.
Water was surprisingly warm considering I thought I had lost all my acclimitisation after being out of the water for so long.
I have lost a lot of stamina and strength but I guess they will come back with time and practice. I think I did a little too much this evening and it was a bit scary when I discovered that my leg strength was so poor that I struggled to climb up the river back afterwards.
But onwards and upwards, as they say
