I often see this kind of motivational writing: You’re fat. Have a good look at yourself and work out how you’re going to run your first 5k. You can’t swim. Start with a length, which feels impossible at first, then work towards 4 lengths without stopping. Before you know it, you can keep going and do your first mile.
What a place. Cool but warm water meets crisp winter air. It doesn’t get much better than swimming (but not swimming up and down) in a pool like this.
