Extra Channel Swim Challenge complete

Screen shot 2014-08-21 at 08.57.09This wasn’t one of my challenges for this year but I’ve done it by accident. I’ve just swum to France! Well, not really, but over the last 8 months, in training for, and including, my open water swims, I’ve swum 35470 metres, that’s about 22 miles, that’s 1418 lengths of a 25m length pool, in 4 different pools, 2 different lidos, 1 river and 1 lake. That’s about 18 hours of swimming in total, spread over 29 sessions. I finished this morning in beautiful Wivey Pool. Now, where’s my passport?
