Our new cockapoo puppy is keeping us rather busy at the moment – as do most 7-week-old dogs, I imagine – so I will keep this brief!
This morning me and my friend Karen (who is also signed up for the Stowe Sprint Triathlon) headed down to Denham Lake for a swim. It was again busy – these lakes are always popular, it seems. Also, again, it took my breath away when I jumped in, but the wetsuit did it’s job and soon I was happily swimming round the lake.
There was lots of weed in the water! On the down-side, the feeling that it is going “to get you” isn’t ideal; on the other hand, seeing it under you as you swim gives you quite a good sense of movement, often missing when swimming in a dark but weedless murk…
In the end, this gave me a Juneathon daily total of about 1km of swimming in just over half-an-hour.
