A gentle swim after a few days off

After the knee problems I had experienced last week and an early wedding anniversary / valentines weekend away with my beautiful wife I had taken a few days off to allow everything to recover. Rather than smash myself to bits on a run or ride, the executive decision was made to go for a nice gentle swim to ease myself back into the rhythm. And so it was that multiple lengths of Flitwick swimming pool were done and all was well with the world. I have a suspicion the my knee problem might’ve related to my bad swimming technique, i.e. a bendy leg kick so I’m going to research drills to make my legs straight and my ankles flexible….off I go!
