All this talk of triathlons made me realise that I needed to get back to my first love – swimming. So I got up at 5:30am this morning to get to the lake for 6:30.
I was a bit late setting off, but I still had plenty of time for 8 laps. It’s a 1/2 mile loop, so simple maths means that is 4 miles. But as I’m a free spirit as a swimmer and I refuse to adhere to society’s desire for straight lines (I swim wonky), plus I need to add a bit for coming into the jetty to feed, I’m rounding it up to 6,900 metres.
Not bad before breakfast.
