As it turned out, 20th December was my last swim of 2017. I either wasn’t properly recovered or picked up another virus and just couldn’t find the energy to swim after that.
However, I did make my target of 500km for the year with plenty of time in hand which is very gratifying. During the course of the year my front crawl stroke has also clearly improved, and I’ve learned to tumble turn. Overall it’s been a successful year and I’m really happy with how I’ve done.
