I’ve finally cracked it, I’ve finally managed to jump on the health train and now I’m in full swing. I’ve managed to lose a few pounds over recent months, mainly by changing my diet but I’ve also been doing some walks and a bit of cycling. Net, it is time to get back into my swimming. It’s been a long time coming but I’m looking forward to getting back in the water. As it’s been so long, I need to get myself some swimming trunks to wear and also a decent pair of swimming Googles.
I don’t know why it’s took me so long to get healthier. I’ve been fat and miserable for the last 2 years and now I feel great. I’ve been eating smaller portions, drinking more water & have completely ditched salty takeaways.
So yeah, time to start swimming again. I’ll pick up any old pair of shorts from the sales in the high street or off the internet, but I do need to make sure that I get a good set of goggles. I remember last time I swam, the goggles I had were awful and I had to empty the water out after every length, just so I could see where I was going. I pulled them as tight as I could but it was just because they were cheap and had a rubbish seal. If I’d pulled them any tighter, I’d end up with a banging headache.
I’ve got my eye on some nice speedo’s. They are about double what I’ve spent in the past but I think it’s worth it. They’re meant to have improved anti-steam lenses so they should stay nice and clear when I swim. I’ve been exploring prescription goggles from the local opticians but they only have a standard style of goggle and the fit isn’t that great. Would be nice to be able to see a bit clearer under water but as long as I can see where I’m going and don’t end up bumping into people, I’ll get by just fine.
