Or more importantly warm water.
Yes dear reader I am off to Lanzarote for some R and R with plenty on sea swimming in water temperatures that will not bring tears to my eyes.
Today the river was hard work after the rain, flowing faster and feeling a bit colder. I must admit I found it hard work swimming into the stream but enjoyed the return leg. I was 2 minutes slower over the 2 miles so I was definitely struggling going into the current.
I am looking forward to returning to school fit, bronzed and blond, well a bit fitter, less pale and slightly sea and sun lightened locks!
