30 April – Monday saw the sun shine, the sauna closed and a lot of toast being consumed. I didn’t stay too long, as I had to be somewhere else. Back improving, but pain moving to other regions. Is it an unrealised anxiety about wanting to swim the Channel? A lack of cross training? The big 50 looming on the horizon? The death of a mid-life crisis? No doubt I’ll be back (pardon the pun), but in the meantime massage, short swims and stroke analysis continues. I think I’ll be doing more supporting than acting these next few months.
Beltane – Some fire festival. Where was the sun? But at least all the rain’s making things fertile. Lots of chatting before swimming. A lot more than usual. Back swimming side by side with Carleone though. Many random items around the place. Mrs Ape made Dan Lepard’s Banana Fudge Cookies, but swapped 50g of spelt flour for the cocoa. Better imho.
