In March, I had the privilege of being asked to take Lynne Allbutt the incredible bare foot runner wild swimming to celebrate her birthday.
This kindred spirit of the great outdoors writes regular columns for newspapers as well as having her own book published about her barefoot running journey and what inspired it.
Here’s her uplifting article on her ‘Birthday on the Wildside’, cold water swimming with me!
A happy, cheery, feel-good story, which will inspire you and make you want to embrace nature even more!
Lynne and I went swimming before the Government’s social distancing and restrictions on travel were introduced.
My name is Angela Jones and I am a sports coach-teacher specialising in running, swimming and kayaking and the underlying strengthening and technique required to learn, improve and excel in these activities.
