Well it's now March 2010 and it's time to fire up the blog once again. This oddessey is far from over and the Channel beckons again. My tide and pilot is booked (19th - 27th July 2010, with Ali Streeter on Roco), the medical is complete and all my documentation has been accepted by the CS&PF. All that is left to do is swim (apart from some serious training!).
With regard to training, I've been somewhat limited to the pool because of the weather and work, though I'm using the pool time well with plenty of technique work. All will change soon though, as I set of to Gozo just after Easter for 3 weeks with SwimTrek. The first week as a swimmer under the guidance of Freda Streeter, Nick Adams and Mia Russell, and the following 2 weeks as a coach and guide, working with Mia and the legend (or is that leg end?) that is Cliff Golding.
I'm off to the CS&PF Dinner this weekend, so plently of motivation, gossiping and wine will be the order of the day. I'm also looking forward to my first dip in Dover harbour for the season. Hopefully I'll post a photo or 2 to prove my insanity.
