Going swimming today for the first time since before the pandemic 🏊

Not gonna lie: I'm a little bit apprehensive, even though I used to swim competitively as a kid.

Weird, isn't it? I think it's because I've put on some weight (~5kg) during the pandemic so I'm not exactly in peak condition...

Update: everything was fine and, although I was slower (of course!) it was like I'd never been away. It helped going in the middle of the day in that the pool was full of retired people swimming leisurely 😅

@dajbelshaw I can empathise with that.

Our youngest keeps asking to go, but I keep saying no.

I'm still a bit apprehensive about being indoors with other people for extended periods, and I am significantly fatter (and less fit) than I was before the pandamic.

Neither make any sense. I'm half vaccinated, and swimming would make me fitter - but thats not how my brain works.

@jamie Yeah, I've been putting it off but now I'm double-vaccinated I have zero excuse 😬

(our kids swim, and I used to be able to race my son so I want to get back to that!)
