Thankfully today’s run felt much easier than the last two, I just seemed to have more energy and less sluggishness. It was jolly cold though, so I donned my tights but left my arms exposed, don’t want to appear to be a complete wuss in October! Maybe it felt easier today because it wasn’t as windy, or maybe it was the porridge I had for breakfast (I normally have muesli).
We set out quite early to get back in time for our Wednesday morning swim. After last week’s almost tropical temperatures, the pool was freezing again so we didn’t stay in that long, even I was feeling it and that’s unusual. There was a schools gala going on in the main pool and the noise was incredible – Hector kept wanting to be picked up to see what was happening. In these days of inclusion, there was a section for competitive floating and also competitive splashing, this made Hector say ‘Wow!’ for the first time, it’s been a week of new words: wow, dumper, ball and goal!
