Oh the joys of open water swimming!
This weekend saw the 3rd cancelled swim in a month 🙁
It very frustrating as I get quite nervous before these events, probably starting a week before. I have never had the training to deal with events before so I get my nutrition all wrong and get stressed out fairly easily. This is something I need to work on.
But as I had booked a hotel I decided to head to Kingston-Upon-Thames anyway and visit Hampton Court Palace!
I have never been to Hampton Court Palace before and I had a great time there. There are so many different areas to explore, from the kitchens to the private chambers. There is also the gardens, which if it had been a nicer day I could have sat there for an afternoon just taking it all, but it was rainy and therefore I just had a wander round.
This made me realise I like exploring new places and am going to try and and explore more places at weekends from now on. I can do it so I only miss one swimming session and I can get quite far in a couple of hours driving 🙂
So once I’m in my new home and have my finances settled I am going to make sure I explore more of the UK!
