Back from my weekend in Norfolk - and still swimming with wild animals ... three ducks are now occupying the Lido waters... and quite a few swimmers too ...makes a change from the beautiful seals I saw on the beach and in the sea in Norfolk!
Today, I had a go at trying to keep up with Sue and Margy ... once they caught on to my challenge they raised the bar and "made me" :) swim with them ...! it simply exhausted me ... can you believe it, I was wearing the training fins .. and yet I was finding it really hard to swim at their pace ... swimming with the training fins was making my legs work hard consequently I was fast getting out of breath - Margy coached me slowing down my stroke and on using the fins correctly - it's not purely a matter of kicking harder, it's more of a flick .... which I still have to perfect .. anyway I din't feel quite as useless tiring myself out as Sue and Margy found it hard to keep up with me too and found some "pleasure" in tiring too! A win/win situation ...?! :) maybe?!
Sarah swimming beautiful breaststroke
I had to run up pool side to catch up with Sarah ... as I hadn't met her before .. can't be publishing people on the blog without (the right) names ... right?!:)
You've always got to be on the watch out ... you never know who may be sneaking up on you, these days!
