Well it has been a longer break than I thought it would be. In fact have just looked and I think it may be a month since I did W6 R1. However I don't need the kick I thought I might.
I decided to go for W6 R2, mainly because I couldn't decide where to go back to, but listened to my body and had decided to note the time if I had to stop, so I could judge where to start again from. But I didn't have to stop - I did the whole thing without any real problems.
My fitness is still fine but then I have in the break done two significant swims (Henley club to Pub in a great 33:49 - yippee! and the Wales Open Water Estuary Swim).
My legs had forgotten how to run initially, were slow (they had not been used for swimming) and I am sure they may seize up a bit later.
I enjoyed it too, so onwards and upwards
