Hello. My name is Tom Parker… but for the purposes of this blog, I’ve dubbed myself the ‘Sleepy Swimmer’, partly because I love a bit of alliteration, and partly because I go swimming at 7am every day and generally arrive feeling knackered.

Between 2010 and 2013, I was lucky enough to work for Speedo’s international PR agency, during which time I wrote a lot about swimming, and its physical and mental benefits.

It’s only now that I realise how true those messages were.

This blog aims to inform, entertain and hopefully inspire as I set out on mission to achieve significant self-improvement in the water.
