These last few weeks, as well as going to the Tri2O Triathlon Club Monday night swim, I’ve found I can get a lane to myself at the Basingstoke Sports Centre if I pick my time. Two swims a week is unheard of for me and I can feel my technique improving. A couple of weeks ago I swam the first 2km of bilateral breathing I’ve done in 25 years or so! Jon and I have decided to do the Jubilee River Swim together in July (like last year), and we’ve just signed up for the 5km individual event of this year’s Swimathon, in a couple of weeks time. (That’s the same weekend as the Tri2O Swim Centre opens for the season, hurrah!)
The Swimathon is in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care, so if you’d like to support their amazing work providing nursing care and support to terminally ill people and their families, please sponsor me.
