KEEP ON TOP FORM

Nutritionist Kathy Findlay cooks up four recipes to help keep you swimming through the winter

In true British tradition, the days may be longer, but we’ll still be ‘blessed’ with frosty mornings and icy cold temperatures for a few months yet. Some hardened souls among you may still be dipping your toes in the open waters while others may be satisfying your swimming desires with regular pool trips, following that blue line up and down. Either way, you’ll be pushing your body’s abilities to stay warm, well nutritioned and free from lurgies, so I’ve put together a selection of easy recipes that’ll help warm you, fill you up, help you recover and pump you full of the vitamins and minerals required to keep you on form.

These first two recipes contain garlic, onion and ginger, all renowned flu and cold fighting foods due to their anti-bacterial properties that help the body fight infection and boost the immune system.

About Outdoor Swimmer

One of the things that keeps me going through the winter is my daily outdoor dip, whatever the weather or temperature. A few years ago this would have been considered pretty odd behaviour by many, but opinions seem to be changing as outdoor swimming and cold water swimming is featured more and more in the media. Indeed, a group of sea swimmers now feature daily on the BBC in the short films between programmes! Find out the story behind the swimmers in our news section. Elsewhere in the magazine we hear from Beth French about her close encounter with a shark in the Molokai Channel, we meet English Channel swimming legends Kevin Murphy and Sally Minty-Gravett and gain an insight into what happens when a swim goes wrong from Mickey Helps’s story of his unsuccessful two-way English Channel swim. I have really been enjoying Terry Laughlin’s series on mindfulness in swimming, which he brings to a close this issue with a look at swimming as ‘moving meditation’. It is a really interesting element to introduce to your training sessions. If you haven’t decided what swims you would like to complete in 2017, check out our event listings. And remember, events are not just for competitive swimmers – a race is only a race if you race it, otherwise it is just a lovely swim. We have some exciting news to share about H2Open – turn to page 27 to learn about our big plans for 2017 and how the magazine is changing. Enjoy the magazine and happy swimming.
