Thanks. My daughter starts school in 2 weeks and my sons start nursery 2 weeks later, so I'll have mornings to go swimming in the week.

Oh and I also have swim membership at the local pool now, so that'll make it easier & cheaper for me :)

If you're going lots then a membership is great.

Works out at the cost of just under 5 swims a month :) so if I go twice a week I'll save lots :) free parking, or can cycle there :)

Thank you. I may never go swimming again. I shall at least give it a rest for a bit and cut back to once or twice a week at a pinch. No targets for next year. If anyone wants the spready or the wiki, please be my guest.

wow, well done IM.

I'm currently treading water near somewhere called Rushey Lock, Oxfordshire. at this rate it may take me something like 8 years to complete but I'll keep going!

Well done, IM! That's an impressive achievement :-)

My swimming has really petered out this year, hoping to get back up to speed next year.

Got something to say?
