I felt better after leaving the pool than before getting in.
2010-2013 – it was cycling
2015-2016 – it was running
2017 – my favoured antidote was swimming.
I would wake up knackered after 6 hours of sleep, and head to the pool for a pre dawn swim. I’d go in cursing, tired, frowning, distraught at the world. I’d come out smiling, with a spring in my step, ready to get cracking with the day.
