Smugness often comes before a fall…

After a week away from training with a tummy bug I returned to my beginners schedule ‘9 weeks to go’ with some trepidation and sporting my shiny and very brightly colored new swimsuit – so far so good. 32 lengths of the 25 meter pool done and I felt pretty chuffed not only had I managed this, but without really thinking about it I’d done front crawl with bi-lateral breathing – result it was all working.

I leaped out of the pool – well climbed up the steps and popped off to the showers, feeling ever so slightly smug and pleased with myself. Whilst washing my hair I felt a slightly strange sensation near the top of my leg and discovered to my horror than in my excitement of getting back in the pool and having a new cozzie I had left the ‘hygiene’ sticker in, this had become detached during swimming and stuck to my inner thigh…. The fall or rather mortification after the smugness…

This week my aim is to swim, remember all my kit and not do anything to embarrass myself.
