I follow a few other swimmers on Twitter and I suppose I’m subconsciously looking out for people mentioning swimming, but today I saw two very separate, very different articles about swimming that I wanted to share them here.
The first is from H2Open magazine – a great publication dedicated to swimmers, that I’ve just started following. The post that caught my attention is about cold water swimming and what goes through your mind. I don’t swim in very cold water (ie at this time of year), but it all seemed to be what I think anyway. Have a read: What goes through the mind of a cold water swimmer?
Just a quick note to say thanks if you followed the “live” tweeting I did on Saturday and apologies if it confused anyone.
What I was actually doing was tweeting as if live, 14 days after the swim. However, all the timings and thoughts were accurate from the swim although I didn’t actually tweet while swimming. I tweet a lot, but not that much!
The main reason for doing was to try and explain the scope of the swim. For many people they might have seen a tweet of mine in the morning then gone out and spent their Saturday doing whatever it is they do on a Saturday. Later in the afternoon checking Twitter again they would have realised that the idiot was still swimming!
I promise it’s coming soon.
It’s just .. well it’s probably going to be quite a long post and to be honest I’m being a bit lazy. But I’ll aim to get it done by the end of the week. Although I’m not sure what I’ll say – there was some water … and then more water … and then 7 hours of water … then I finished. I’ll try to spice it up a bit.
I’m also thinking of “live tweeting” it this Saturday – i.e. tweeting as if live the whole swim using the hashtag #1000kms.
If you think that’s a terrible idea let me know in the comments, otherwise, look out for it on Twitter this Saturday.
