It’s been a while since I did one of these…. but I warned you they wouldn’t be on anything near a regular schedule! I’ve got a really nice response to the ones I’ve done so far, so thank you for the comments. This strip is less an account of a single encounter as it is a recurring problem on the occasions I attempt backstroke in the pool. I’m a bit neurotic about doing it, only doing it when I’m in a lane of my own or the pool’s empty. But even then my nerves get the better of me!
