After my first not very good attempt at swimming some while ago, I have been going to the Calvert Trust pool for the last 3 weeks with much more success. Firstly the pool is completely 'disabled' friendly from the changing rooms and showers to the steps with rails right into the pool. (There is also a hoist if you need it, but you have to have someone qualified to use it.) The temperature of the water and air are above 32 degrees so lovely and warm both in and out of the pool and the real bonus is the jacuzzi/hot tub which is heated to around 36 degrees and has jets which do wonders for aches and pains! I have sorted out swimming both on my back and front without too much problem. It takes all my concentration to go in a straight line and once I start to get tired becomes very difficult, but I leave the pool feeling better and am able to do more each time I go. Next session is tomorrow afternoon!
