Macclesfield Canal - 16th February 2014

Clarke Lane <> Higher Poynton Marina
Not sure of the outbound time, GPS turned itself off.
Return leg was 56:43, so fairly slow, but the first time I've done this distance for a while.
Mulling over doing the Eddystone Challenge again in June, so need to increase distance!

Macclesfield Canal - 9th February 2014

Club Hare and Hounds handicap race.
4 miles race, plus another 1.5 miles getting to and from Clarke Lane and the start/finish.
Finished 3rd in a time of 42:10. Not as cold and blowy as I thought it was going to be, but I think using pogies was still the right decision.

Bollington Pool - 31st January 2014

Another 30 minute pool session, lots of rolling, both left and right handed.
Could hand roll with a single mini float in one hand just to give that extra bit of help. Changed hand roll to going in leaning forwards and unwinding from there, rather than my fully laid back style that had worked previously.
