Having missed out on accompanying Jon and Suzanne at Norwich last week, I made my way down to London for a masters meet hosted by none other than Erith and District Swimming Club – the club I first joined nearly 20 years ago as a bright eyed and bushy tailed learner/improver! It was lovely to see some other swimmers and coaches who I learnt to swim and compete with when I was younger.
I swam in 4 events: 400 and 200 free; 50 fly and 100 IM. Despite my times not being what I hoped for (I blame the running training!!), I still managed to bag two 2nd places, a 3rd place and a 4th place in my age category.
Thank you to everyone who wished me luck in the lead up.
