Another quiet day here, got up pretty early again due to Sophiecat being demanding but that was ok as it meant I got some work done before I went swimming.
The lake was glorious today, colder than last week but felt warmer overall and the sun was shining which meant I caught some rays too, I did 3 laps a mixture of breaststroke and front crawl, putting your face in the water stings like hell and even more so when you take it out the water, slowly getting used to this so was able to do more front crawl than the last 2 weeks, the other thing that happens when I do front crawl is when I stop I get motion sickness, where I feel dizzy and the horizon is all over the place, the only way I’ve found to stop this is to start doing crawl again, however, someone suggested that I try some earplugs so I’ve ordered some today with the hope they arrive before I swim again on Wednesday. As it’s now summer season the lake is open during the week as well as weekends, my plan is to go on a Wednesday and Sunday and start to build up the distance I’m swimming as well as doing more front crawl.
The other thing I noticed this week is that I’m quite tearful when I’m warming up, not sure why this is but often when I’m sitting quietly with my thoughts, tears swell in my eyes perhaps it’s just my body’s emotional response to the cold.
As it’s the start of a new month, I’ve just written a new blog post on my other blog for March, it was a tough month for me emotionally for many reasons, I get a really positive response to my blogs as I’m really honest in them, it’s the only way I know how to be so feels natural to share my life like that may be I’m too honest sometimes but hey ho!
Being honest and authentic seems to be a rare thing these days with our cookie-cutter lives on social media filtered to only really show the good bits or curated untrue life! I don’t want to be that, I’m warts and all kind of person and glad I don’t fall for the filtered lives I see on Instagram.
