My feelings are best shown with the marvellous graffiti currently along the Regents Canal. There is now 1 week leading up to the London Youth Games swimming on Saturday and then followed on Sunday the London Borough of Waltham Forest (Gators) summer meet at the London Aquatics Centre.
It’s always harder to get to the LAC pool when approaching roads and walkways are closed due to other events.
Tomorrow morning for AM practise we have to get up earlier because buses are on diversion and walkways around the LAC are closed.
Looking forward to the usual pool based competition but cannot help wondering why all the best pool swimmers are also doing very well in the Open Water. For example Keri-Anne Payne won a 10km open water sea race in 2014.
Suppose Marathon and Open Water swimming help a lot with endurance and general strength.
