Day 51 – The Squad

Today I’m proud and slightly flabbergasted (isn’t that a great word) to announce I’m part of a swim squad. A swim squad that meets at 6am in the mornings πŸ˜‚.

If you’d told me 51 days ago I’d be part of a swim squad in less than 2 months and I’d be complimented on my beautiful head positioning (unfortunately everything else appears to need a lot of work), I’d have laughed you under the table.

But here I am. A sober swimmer. Being given an official hat was a complete and utter surprise. I then got paired to swim with a lovely lady who makes the cakes for the open water swims. We spent the intervals blissfully discussing our favourite cakes and I’m pleased to also announce I now have her spiced courgette cake recipe.

So that’s me today, how’s everyone else?

  1. I totally love your posts. They make me smile so much. And look at you with your perfect head positioning πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. I keep looking at that swim hat and remembering the pain at getting those things in and off with long hair. Agony! Xxx

  2. Well done you! Sounds like you’re going to have a lot of fun with your swimming buddies and getting up for a 6am swim is a massive deterrent to drinking! 😘😘
