Sunshine on a rainy day. Late to meet Big C (what a role reversal!), but cookies in hand. Just one swimmer in the pool on arrival (Big C) and no one signed in for the last hour. Rain keeping people away no doubt. Dropped cookies with Anthony and Karen (lifeguards) on the way in and gave Big C a pair of Aquasphere K180 googles. They are a new model, but are of the eye socket type, so uncomfortable for me, but right up Big C’s strada. He loved them. A quick chat with Adam and a passing chit with Nick and Bertie on their way out.
Feeling tender, so contented myself with 1000 yards and lots of water supported stretching, whilst Mrs Ape clocked up another km; happy that she’s now a couple of minutes below 30 for 1200 yards. Then out and into a deserted sauna…so continental style, before a quick coffee and off.
Ape – 100o yards, Mrs Ape – 1200 yards. 9 degrees C.
