Day Off

No swimming today! 

Instead I did an hour of Recuperative Yoga under the instruction of Cesca at the Yoga Body Centre , Clapton Pond. 

In yoga body movement is governed by breathing. Just like swimming. 

I discovered some great stretches, but the best thing was finding a way of relaxing.


Afterwards returned home to sleep, text and bathe in hot water. Nice. 

Now to read some pottery



I have started to include a little yoga in my dry side exercises . It has really helped improve my flexibility and achieve a more relaxed stroke and breathing.

Here are a couple of exercises for back and neck which I find particularly useful.


Strengthen your neck and back muscles
