Today was the start of the Aspire Channel Challenge and the start of my own personal challenge to do the 22 miles in 22 days in 22 different venues.
Not only that, but as Joshua PR is supporting Aspire with this, I’d arranged for a photographer from the Nottingham Post to come along and take some photos of me swimming. He did some photos of me by the side of the pool, then some of me swimming. Then he disappeared (to cover a Forest U21s match I believe) and let me swim.
Today’s swim was at Bingham and it was a lovely leisure centre and pool. Clean, spacious changing rooms and a nice pool with three very wide lanes in. There was plenty of room in each lane to swim up and down and overtake in the centre of the lane. Not only that, but the pool was just nicely busy – busy enough to feel as if the pool was viable and making money, but not so busy that it disrupted the swim.
1 down, 21 to go.
