Well, after a bit of to-ing and fro-ing, I finally went swimming today. (There were a couple of hitches, when they needed passport photos, and wouldn't accept Visa cards.) So, I'm now signed up at the sports centre for a year's concessionary membership, which will work out saving me money if I go swimming more often than 15 times in the year (i.e. once every 3 weeks), so that's an incentive :) Once I got in the pool, I managed 14 lengths (350m). That's not too bad, considering I haven't swum for almost 3 years (since my diving holiday in June 2000), but it's equally not too good, considering that I did lifeguard training at school, and used to be able to swim a mile (64 lengths) before breakfast when I was at Durham. Ah well, hopefully I'll get back into the swing of it.
