Swimming in the rain!

There is something unique, invigorating about swimming outdoors in the rain. Having got back to full training and completed my first 2.8km swim session in a long while, I was struck by the sounds, the smell and the experience of swimming in the rain.

Couldn't have contrasted more with my prior swim session in the NYSC, swimming at 8.30pm with a drill session that included kicking on your back and some backstroke, where I was also fortunate to have another first time swim experience. The NYSC pool has a triangular glass roof, with the lights on and at night you can watch yourself swim. Weird, but much better than trying to guess when you are getting towards the end of the lane only to bump your head before finding you were closer than you thought!
