At the start of the holiday I set myself a challenge to keep myself fit and my weight someway in check. I decided to swim the English Channel. Well, not the actual channel but the equiviliant 21 miles in the pool. I figured 80 laps a day is a mile so it would take me three weeks.
I know I didn't have dangers like sharks and bitter coldness to contend with. But I bet very few channel swimmers had been out on the lash in Foleys the night before their swim. Now that's a challenge!
This morning, a few days later than intended due to unforeseen circumstances

I finshed the 21 miles.

There was no one waiting for me at the end of my arduous journey, no trumpets or banners. Just my own private self satisfaction that I HAD DONE IT!
