Then today, I went and supported a friend at the Strathclyde Country Park Great Swim. www.greatswim.org. Jackie (675) did real well, doing her swim in 37:06, and made it look easy! It was a one mile swim and it was pretty choppy and windy but the sun was out. I helped Jackie train for it, and although she was covered in sh…I mean silt when she came out…it did look pretty appealing. I’d need to get a wet suit, at about 100 quid, but maybe I could be doing some more open water swimming over the next year anyway. We’ll see.
Tomorrow is a long run and the gym – back shoulders and core, all before swimming teaching. It’s been a good week, and I’ve kept up the gym / weights work which I’m happy with. Need to get back into the swimming soon I think – just once a week so it should be easy x
