Last training swim for the year at Boundary Water Park

The title says it all really! Uswim are shutting up shop for the season at Boundary Water Park so went along this evening for a last open water swim there for the year. Water was a very very chilly 14'c! and quite dark with the sun having already set. Hands, feet and ears felt cold all the way round but was entranced by the flashing lights on the marker buoys to help them stand out in the dark!

Having looked at some video of my Salford swim last Sunday and seeing my windmill arms and head too far out of the water when breathing, I tried to focus a bit more on the technique this evening. Felt better but turned out to be a lot slower, covering the mile in a surprising 44minutes! Gonna miss these sessions! Roll on Spring! :-)
