I did it.
At the weekend I swam in the 2swim4life event in Guildford and managed to swim 24 miles over 24 hours. Given that before the weekend the most I’d ever swum in one day was the 10.5 miles of Windermere it’s fair to say I’m pretty pleased with that.
Not only was the swimming tough, but the constant getting in and out added a lot of extra psychological toughness to it. In fact, a lot of the channel swimmers at the event said that just swimming non-stop for 20 odd miles is easier.
Let me just repeat that – a lot of people said that swimming the channel is easier. So maybe that’s what I’ll do next…

Oh no, you’ve said it out loud again!! Dangerous……. Well done at the weekend. Hard as nails 🙂
I know, it’s a bit like the bloke who pretends he doesn’t fancy the girl but keeps talking about her. Someday soon I’m gonna have to man up and ask her out 😉
