Throwing out the towel

After saying something earlier this month about starting as I mean to go on regarding swimming, I have not been doing too well ie. I don't think I've been back to the pool till today... was a 6 o'clock start this morning and we plunged back in. Monday is a good day to do it because Schweppes (the drinks company) operate a great Mondays scheme. You buy a bottle of Abbey Well mineral water from any supermarket and save the cap. On Mondays you hand it in at a participating pool and you get a free schwim!! Good eh?!

In the changing room I realised that I hadn't brought a towel. Lucky that my husband is a generous sort and shared his with me. Given the lack of exercise over the past 6 weeks, I was pleased with my performance - 1K in 32 minutes.


  1. Good for you. It'd take me more like 32 hours to complete 1K. But I'm starting to think I'd like to be able to swim further. A NY resolution maybe.

  2. Glad to hear you're back in the pool! xx

  3. Cheers Nell! And Chris - you would have to change the name of your blog if you did it in anything less than 32 hours!!
