I dont know about you but this lockdown has put a rather large tummy on me with all the baking and chilling.
But now for me its time to step up and focus.
It's silly to think that I'll perform the same as I was a few month ago SO if you have not been in the water since last year you might find you wont be in long ?
The first swims back
It's really all about soaking up that surroundings and noises of the water n birds.
& It's really all about connecting and disconnecting.
Dont expect to loose much of the tummy or grow that stamina after one swim.
It takes a little while for your body to adjust and so just go with it and smile.
But you will need to make sure all that gear is in good shape before packing up that swim bag.
It's funny how so many do this but when most people (80%) are heading for a swim they dont pack any water or juice... you even see this a swimming pools.
SO DONT FORGET TO HYDRATE.
And dont forget your face mask
From even your first swim you will get some lovely chemical releases in the body such as endorphins and adrenalin.
Which will most likely put you in a clear headed fresh bounce & might even help you make that list of jobs disappear.
I find returning after a small break I get a very particular high off being in the water which lasts for a long while.
Be sure to look at getting a TowFloat to help people distance from you while swimming. Not only can you hold on to them in the water and been seen but These are also great for the hidden snack after a dip.
