And what a bath that was! As the lyrics go, ..a-splishin' and a-splashin', reelin' with the feelin' movin' and a-groovin' rockin' and a-rollin', yeah, yeah.. That pretty much sums up my experience at the Annual
Swimarathon that took place at the Magnet Leisure Centre in
Maidenhead on the 6th of January.
The atmosphere was electrifying, the smell of the chlorine, the calm water and the sound of flip-flops; an all, too familiar setting; flashbacks from when I was in my early teens, when I used to swim for the Kyrenia Nautical Club.
I must admit, I did not pace myself on my first 2 lengths (1 circuit) which meant that it took me a while to get my heart rate back in check, but we made good progress at the end. With Lisa on the helm it’s difficult not to perform, and perform we did, with 80 lengths between the 4 of us in 50 minutes.
We moved, we grooved, we rocked and we rolled and then we realised how unfit we are… Yet what a day, we had fun while at the same time aiding a philanthropic cause, raising more than £500.
This is a highly recommended event for all of you swimmers (or floaters) out there of all ages...so I hope to see more of you joining the team next year!
