First OW swim....

Had to put pen to paper!?!? and make a quick comment on my first OW swim.

I'm def not the stongest swimmer (furthest before today was 400m and could only swim half length in Jan!)

So was pretty nervous about my first OW - but went to Liquid Leisure this morning (up at a very very early 5.30).

And i've got to say i absolutely loved it - I've found the pool, to be honest, a little boring - but didn't want to get out of the lake today...Swam 400 x 2 and then 750m (prob helped by the wetsuit)

Just wanted to go straight back in!!

If i didn't have the bug bad enough before now - this has jsut made it worse [:D]

C'mon Northampton Sprint on 28th.....

    Nice one WillTri. Have yet to experience that particular joy as yet myself, but it'll come I'm sure [:D] Good encouragement though.
