Lake Windermere

Finally, the water is starting to warm up. Last night the river was 17.8 but with the rain and Arctic winds predicted this weekend it will drop again.

Getting in serious milage now and working on swimming faster as well as longer. Swimming with faster swimmers has definitely improved my sped and stamina and I am really starting to feel the benefits.

Didn't get to do the 12 hour swim as I was pretty crook the night before. There will be other swims.

Trying some new swims in the next few weeks, Pilton lock swim this week amd swimming through the backs of the Cambridge colleges soon.

Listening to Cold Chisel Swingshift in the car. Gets me ready for my swim. Legendary band.

Setting off. 7am. Only 13 and a half hours to go!
