Diving Back In

Whilst I've always loved it, swimming has tended to be something which gets put on the back burner for me. I loved swimming lessons as a child, and I was a proper water-baby until I had to move house in Year 5 and never managed to a join swimming club again once I'd settled into my new life. That said, I've been planning to dive back in to it for too long now - so enough is enough, 2014 is my year for swimming.

During my placement year I have free use of a swimming pool (right next to my work) so I am definitely going to make use of whilst I'm on placement so I can make the effort to fit swimming into my exercise routine at least once a week, if not more! With Christmas (and particularly January sales) coming up super fast it's the perfect opportunity for me to indulge in some sports-related retail therapy - and I have plenty of items on my wishlist to purchase.
Swimming goggles are essential for a great workout in the water, and along with the countless amounts of brightly-coloured swimming cozzies I'll be able to buy like the ones above from Nike, I'll also be able to make sure that I have ample amounts of awesome goggle-eyed loveliness to prevent me from getting the stinging, red eyes that I remember from my swimming lessons! There's no way I'll be going to work after my morning swim looking like I haven't slept for two days.

If I find my mojo and enjoy it as much as I used to - I'm also hoping to even attempt to enter Triathlons. It's looking a little way into the future, but after marshalling a Double Ironman when I was younger I always held a great admiration of those who could master not just one sporting discipline, but three - especially to the level which these guys had. I've never been so in awe of a persons ability to push themselves that hard and finish with a smile on their face!

If anyone has any tips on how they got back into swimming again, or even tips on beginning to train for Triathlons, then please send an email my way! I know that Zoggs have a great range of Predator Flex Performance goggles which are one of the first their kind - adapting to different light. Which would be perfect for open water swimming  - but it would be interesting to see if any of you lovely lot have recommendations of products and brands which you couldn't swim without!
