Normally swimming pool sessions are more or less the same. Some amusement is found by swimming against the clock, observing small clouds of phlegm left by previous swimmers or counting the amount of hairbands and plasters that collect on the bottom.

Six Hour Swim Weymouth, May 28th

The alarm went off. It was 5:30am. It was a Saturday. Most people’s alarms don’t do that. Most people don’t set their alarms at all at the weekend.
