Curious Adventures in 2019
Two years of swimming now, lets see where the water takes me!
Nine swims in ice this year!
I got a little competitive at the Scottish Winter Swimming Championships at Loch Tay, for the 50m Headsup Breaststroke I came in at 1:00.56 and won in my age group and third male overall! 4th out of 33 swimmers overall. Before leaving I got to swim around in the snow which was beautiful!
On the 30th of March, a few of us went to Black Moss Pot for some swimming, I was in there for 20 minutes, jumping and playing around. So tired for 12 hours afterwards. It's progress to jumping in the lake.
It's April now and I'm a lot happier, still some stress kicking around but car noises are proving to be less of an issue. I'm relaxing so talking more and having more fun!
On April the 19th the sun has been out and with five days of 21°c heat, which has woken up the warmer water after the snow a couple of weeks ago. Front crawl swimming has resumed.
It's the start of June, the water in Windermere is 7.9 degrees colder than last year! And my mum has come swimming with me :D
On July 21st a rock landed on my foot, that's at least three weeks of no swimming to make sure the fracture heals.
Swimming on average every 1.88 days this year. 115 days (12th Jan) until 200 swims! Estimated swims by the end of this year (103 days)... 194!
