This website is all about being active. Simple. But that by no means is restricted to only yoga or running. Why not take up swimming, and cycling – and throw triathlon in to the mix?
Luckily my parents took my three siblings and I to swimming lessons at a fairly early age, and then from the age of 7-11yrs I was a member of a swimming club practising numerous mornings before school. When, at the 11 I started competing in cross-country running, I switched and joined the ‘Darlington Harriers’ athletics club. However, the swim coaching we received has stuck with me (I can still swim!), and even to this day I am super thankful for the time and effort coaches Mrs. Hall, and later Mrs. Wilkinson put in with us – pacing up and down the poolside calling out instructions.
Knowing the impact of a good coach I have decided to join a Master’s Swimming Club. My theory is that I swam best as a kid when I was in a club, and also to improve it always helps to have someone watching your form and telling you what to do!
