Recovery

Before I ran I swam.

I haven’t swam properly (for at least 1,000m) in almost 15 years.

Until this week.

In order to stretch out my spine/pelvis joint and so that my lungs remember what they’re supposed to do I’ve been swimming on holidays.

I brought a pair of goggles from 15 years ago with me. Apart from them being so opaque I could have been registered as blind they leaked. So I’ve invested in a new pair and have enjoyed a morning of swimming to exhaustion.

I’d forgotten how complicated a job it is to count laps of a pool. I presume in the intervening 15 years someone has invented an app to solve that for you.
