If you are anything like me, being able to identify your favourite book, film or piece of music is almost impossible. There are far too many great books and often they inspire the great films. Music is associated so much with memory and nostalgia, the first notes of a song being able to transport you back in time. Identifying one book, one film, one song – impossible!

About Outdoor Swimmer

FIT FOR LIFE One of the great things about outdoor swimming is that it can be done by people of all ages. Whether it is wild swimming with your kids or entering races in the super vet category, swimming can be part of your life whatever your age. Our July issue has a Fit for Life theme. As we swim through the ages we look at how we can encourage more young people to swim in the open water, how we should adapt our training as we get older, how one school transformed its swimming lessons and how we can use strength training to combat age-related muscle loss. Plus, we meet swimmers of all ages to discuss their relationship with swimming outdoors.
