An unexpected morning free of work, so arranged to meet Big C down the lido. I was late. But we had plenty of time. So we decided to do a mile (or 18 lengths). When we arrived we were the only ones in the pool; and it stayed that way for much of our swim. I started to get really cold around length 15, but by then knew I could complete the mile and have some sense left to spare. I was a little dazed on exit, but only minorly so.
We were joined in the sauna by Jenny and another fellow, whose name I cannot remember, and chatted about tweets, blogs and activism. Jenny has a plan to swim in every public pool in London. She’s not certain how many there are, but you can read about her journey at Swim Around London – when I can find it, I’ll link it!
