After-Work Wild Swim
It was a hot day - the first real hot one of the year. So, after a day in a hot, stuffy office I headed out after work for a swim. Absolutely invigorating. It is nice to live close to the ground once in a while.
The photo is taken from my phone - propped up in my trainer! All my kit was actually on a dam wall. The sticks in the foreground are in shallow water which quickly deepens at the point you see me splashing around.
After I dried off I headed home with the stereo blasting and blue skies above. I really couldn't wipe the grin from my face.
*UPDATE: I just want to add that at as we enjoyed a cloudless sky, at lunchtime I spent 30 minutes sunbathing. I work next to a leisure centre with a secluded courtyard bordered by plenty of trees. I just put on my headphones and gently walked in a circuit (wearing just my shorts), trying to top up on VitD.
I usually supplement VitD over winter, but stop when the clocks change. In fact I have reason to believe I was overdoing the VitD....
