For the first time in 23 days I won’t be swimming today.
For the last 22 days I have swum a mile each day as part of my Aspire Channel Swim. I have now landed in France and so I’m taking the day off to enjoy the cheese and wine. (Unfortunately for me, this is as true as the fact that I’ve actually swum the channel – but I have swum 22 miles).
For me the swimming was never going to the big challenge – I’ve actually swum no less than a mile each day, but often more and have averaged at just over 2km per day – however the logistics and repetition of it were a big challenge. No matter what else I’ve been doing I’ve had to make time for a swim every day. And of course to make it harder for myself I’ve tried to do it in a different venue every day – what an idiot!
Anyway, it’s done now. I’ll post more about it later, as despite what sounds like a moan I’ve really enjoyed it.
In the meantime I’ve been featured in my local paper, so you can read the article in the Nottingham Post.
And of course, it’s not too late to sponsor me.
