Well, it seems that my technique in the pool really is that bad. I was questioned about it again today. By Nose-Clip-Man! He wasn’t quite as direct as Sister 2’s friend the other week, but to be honest, I wouldn’t have noticed if he had been.
Why? Because this quite well built, obviously very fit, good looking bloke…sounds like
Mickey Mouse when he talks! I was so shocked about the mis-match between body and voice that I was impressed I could still explain about my nose clip requirement despite my deformed giraffe swimming position.
As well as being surprised, I left feeling a bit smug as I am started to be accepted by the morning swimming clique (the Morning Mafia). This may have taken a little longer than average due to the fact that I (accidentally) propositioned Nose-Clip-Man early on, but I got a good morning from Don Sideways-Swim. Now that is real progress!
So that’s the social side sorted. Now I just need to work on my technique :o)
