It might not sound like much given that this is a blog (in theory) all about swimming. However I’ve had a bad back for the last four months, so I’ve hardly swim at all.
At first I tried to swim through it, but that was no good. So then I tried to use swimming as therapy, but it wasn’t.
So for the last three months or so I haven’t swum at all.
Over the last few days my back has started to feel a little bit better. I don’t want to tempt fate, but just maybe…
Anyway, I decided to risk a swim today and managed a whole 500m, I was delighted. Of course I had a rest at the end of every length, but 20 whole lengths!
It was also nice that a few people at the pool said hello and asked if I’d been away. I suspect that they just enjoyed a more relaxing swim over the last few months – well, that might be about to change!
UPDATE – 1st Sept
I has swimmed again today – another 500m. This time I even managed to it in 100s (so 4 lengths at a time, no rest)!
