swim good with speedo uk

13th March 2014
All Equipment – c/o Speedo UK I work and workout in an area where you have the choice of either a £200 per month gym membership or a £10 per month gym membership. There really is no happy medium which coincides with my commute. Needless to say as appealing as The Grove’s extensive gym, spa and pool facilities are, That would considerably eat into/demolish my shoe budget. So I opted for the cheap and cheerful option but my burning desire for pool lengths and sauna sessions very much lives on.  I find being in the water extremely calming and almost therapeutic, and with the opportunity to burn 240kcal during 30 minutes of front crawl, you can see why many opt for swimming over the soul destroying treadmill. So when Speedo UK contacted me wanting to raise awareness of the benefits of swimming I took my impeding spa break to put some of their gadgets to the test and not exactly being a gifted water baby, they were extremely welcomed aids. I pushed my new Speedo goggles down over my eyes and strapped on the Fitness Fins and Finger Paddles, I’m not going to sugar coat it I felt a tad out of my depth (pardon the pun) all this professional gear for someone who thinks swimming a length is moving from one side of the hot tub to the other. Luckily I’d done a bit of swatting up via the Speedo website here on how to use my new tackle. As mentioned, I’m not the strongest of swimmers but have always enjoyed the feeling of moving through the water and my new aids made the process a lot more smooth sailing so much so that I’ve decided to start making an effort to hit the pool at my boyfriends oh-so-luxe […]

As mentioned, I’m not the strongest of swimmers but have always enjoyed the feeling of moving through the water and my new aids made the process a lot more smooth sailing so much so that I’ve decided to start making an effort to hit the pool at my boyfriends oh-so-luxe gym at least once at the weekends in order to incorporate that to my current cardio regime (until I win the lottery and can afford the gyms in my area, that is).
But if your not as much of an “All the gear and no idea” kind of person as I am, Speedo also have a great selection of videos to help you improve your technique and maximize your workout which can be found here, as well as a great app to track your progress and set new goals available from the iTunes store here so you can hit the water with confidence.

Everything feels a little more optimistic as March begins don’t you think?
It’s the start of spring in my book Evergreen shortly followed by the spring equinox so there’s ample time to prepare, nest and refresh. 
The light returns, hello March 🌱
There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad weather attire 💧
A little indulgence from my comfort of my own home thanks to INCREDIBLE @kmp_skin and @freshbeauty Ad 
for the launch of the new Lotus Youth Preserve Resurfacing dream serum which is a gentle AHA serum with prickly pear flower extract said to boost radiance and it was so lovely to be treated to a first trial to get a very first impression of the serum thanks to KMP and her magic hands. I’ve literally never had a facial like it!
The plum tree in our garden is always the first blossom to erupt at this time of year narrowly beating the much loved aubretia that grows in abundance through our old garden wall. As soon as is acceptable I’m out with my secateurs ready to fill vases and prickly jars with its delicate confetti like blooms 🌸
Februarys carpet of Crocus blooms is always quite the spectacle. I find these little cheerful perennial flowers popping up in the most unlikely of places and what’s special is how they naturalise and multiply each year to create a carpet of flowers ready for the early Winter-Spring bees 🌱
Winter Spring views.
