Living in London we don't have the privilege of going down to the beach and swim along the shore like my mates in Barcelona, who have been bragging about the lovely weather they have been geting lately. Nor do we have safe canals to swim in like some clubs do in Cape Town, where I'm moving to in September.
We do, however, have great lakes to swim in, and I can't wait for Heron Lake to open. It is a mere 20 minutes away from my house and last time I went it WAS PACKED with triathletes in training. The lake opens to the public on Sunday April 28th at 6am, and I plan to be there on time.
