What a fantastic swim! I seem to have stumbled on the magic performance-boosting formula:
• spend every waking hour with deifheids and NPD sufferers, until you think you can't take it any more.
• work in an organisation so dysfunctional that it treats its staff as bad as its customers. Spend all day on a role where you are apologising to the clientele for managerial eff ups. This all helps to raise the rage levels.
• brew up a strong British cuppa.
• swim in a lane clogged with young NPD victims.
• discover a new breathing technique: hold each lungful while your head's underwater; just before your head surfaces, exhale explosively while thinking Bathplugs or Bunch Of Currants; the big inbreath comes by itself.
This honestly was the best swim ever. Not the most enjoyable but the most proficient. The Alabama coach would be proud.
