A length too far

The whole family went to the Aquamar swimming pool today as it was a wet, miserable, rainy day – no chance to get into the garden.

It was also the first round of the Haddock Family Swimming challenge, to see who can swim the furthest. I bottled out at 30 lengths, so Mrs Haddock and Haddock Juniorette make it to the final. It’s humiliating to be beaten by a 6 year old.

For me 30 lengths (30 x 25m = 750m) is perhaps a bit much for one no longer at the peak of physical condition. On returning home I had to lie down on the sofa for a little while. I awoke 3 hours later.
