Channel swimming season starts

The 2010 Channel swimming season officially opened today with the legendary Dover harbour training sessions kicking off under Freda Streeter’s expert eye.

I’m not swimming this year (although I might pop down for a visit and a swim later in the season). I swam the English Channel in 2004 and 2008, took part in a 6-(wo)man relay swim to France and back in 2005 and swam round Jersey in 2007.

There are lots of other marathon/solo (whatever you choose to call them) swims I’d love to do but, for now, I’m really enjoying dedicating my training time to cycling, running, strength and conditioning.

Maybe next year… 😉

Have you got any questions about Channel swimming? Let me know and I’ll do my best to answer! If I don’t know, I’ll certainly know someone who does 🙂

So, whilst those 115 (115!?!) wannabe or returning Channel swimmers are shivering in Dover, I’m shivering in Aviemore (it’s very cold here). From seaside to mountain tops!
