I’ll be honest – I don’t really know. I’m making this up as I go!
I’ve done quite a few swims in Open water
- Budworth Mere
- Coldwick Park
- Albert Dock
- Dover (Champion of Champions)
But I’ve not done any outdoor swimming this year – I’ll probably get my first taste of Open Water in late May when I pop down to Harbour where I’m hoping that the informal training sessions are happening in the Harbour.
In the meantime, it’s Pool training at Virgin Active in Leeds. Now that Sarah (my missus) is much better following her operation, I can restart my training in earnest!
This week my target is to go to the pool 5 times and swim 124 lengths each time. If that goes well, I should have notched up over 9.5 miles. It’s going well despite having a bit of a cold – but for some reason I always find the first 50 length a pain, and after that it becomes easier. Let’s hope that it gets easier the further I have to go!!
