After swimming Bala last weekend I had a very good judge of swimmers (and a long distance swimmer herself) tell me that she thought I would be more than capable of swimming Windermere this year.
It hadn’t even crossed my mind before she said to be honest, my plan was always to swim it next year. Mainly because I had assumed that there was no way I’d be ready this year. But now… well it’s got me thinking.
I’ve got a 5 1/4 mile swim in Coniston this weekend, so I need to see how that goes first. It might be that last week’s exertions have taken too much out of me and I struggle this weekend. But if not, well maybe there’s a chance.
I’d love to hear your comments / thoughts on this. Should I go for it?
