You'll see by my picture that I was a swimmer many years ago and I really loved it. I'm getting back into it and challenging myself to swim to save lives.
Every day, one young Aussie takes their own life – that's one too many.

Swimming in the rainArrived at the pool after work only to be told that the lap pool was closed because of the lightning 😱 Luckily they let me in to wait and the pool opened 10 minutes later. Very few people swimming and I had a lane to myself for most of my 20 laps.
Best effort yet
16 laps 🏊♀️ on a beautiful Sunday afternoon in Sydney. Must have been my gorgeous family cheer squad.
10 laps done...
...110 to go! Feeling very virtuous. I said no to beers after work and instead did my first laps. Fox and Michael came along for moral support. After I found my ideal pace, very slow, it wasn't as hard as I expected. And brought back memories of how meditative swimming can be. Especially when you are the only swimmer in the slow lane. Planning to get to the pool twice more over the weekend. Lets see how my shoulders feel in the morning.
