I seem to be struggling to come out of hibernation and get my swimming mojo working again. Any excuse to wriggle out of swimming - I grab it with both hands. For the second time this week my husband's moral support got me down to the pool and once I'm in I'm fine. Another 1K with minimum effort and the joy of swimming is (temporarily) restored.
Maybe part of the problem is that the pool is frequently quite full and I have to spend more time sighting to avoid crashing into other swimmers. This means it's harder to get into the bliss zone.
Anyhoo, I did manage to have time for some ideas today. One of them was to arrange to have my swimming analysis at TriCentral. This was one of my Christmas presents and I was saving it for a rainy day. Well, I think that wet moment has arrived. My birthday is coming up, so I'll book it to coincide with my festivities and give my spirits a lift.
Other reasons to be cheerful - Hathersage pool is open again and Nantwich re-opens on 15 May. Salford is open for business tomorrow, but swimming in the quays still doesn't really appeal. As this is the Bank Holiday weekend, I'm wondering about going up to Gaddings Dam to check it out and - maybe - take the plunge.
