It sounds funny but I actually took a break from longer swims in the middle part of the summer.
I did a lot of kayaking for a while and got pretty exhausted. August was hot and I was low on energy.
Come September, I picked up swimming again, mostly with company! This was my first longish swim in a few months. It felt very good.
