So I've decided to swim the English Channel!
Not the actual channel mind, but the equiviliant. I've googled it and its width at its narrowest is 21 miles.
Now when I was doing "Swim a mile with a smile" last year, 80 lengths of the pool was a mile. The pool here is roughly the same size.So I can do it in 21 days which leaves a litttle bit of leeway for any days I just can't manage it!
I know, I know. Swimming in a nice, warm pool is not the same as braving the elements in a freezing, wavy, polluted ocean where you have to dodge ships and floating dirty nappies. Channel swimmers do it in a few hours, while I will take 4 weeks.
But its still a big challenge for me.
On the past three mornings I have been at the pool at 10 before it gets too busy. On Sat I did 40 lemgths. Sunday was 50 and Monday was 60....despite getting to bed at 5!
Tomorrow morning should be easier.
\i feel that if I get the Healthy bit of the day over as early as possible then I have the whole day to undo the goodness
And I shouldn't have to be rolled onto the plane!
