  • Getting stronger again

    This morning I went for a swim at my friends’ pool, and managed to do nine lengths. I had considered doing 10, but after nine I felt quite wrecked, and in any case, 9 was a record (and 50% better than when I started a couple of weeks ago). Slightly shakily, I got dressed and […]

Perhaps because I’m stuffed full of […]
