  • I feel that if one is choosing to raise money by doing a physical challenge it needs to be just that a challenge for the participant too So there are two goals raising money AND personal achievement Are you a naturally good long distance swimmer No I am a reasonably strong swimmer having swum since I was a child but once I had decided to undertake the swim I had to alter my swimming style to make sure I had the stamina to complete the distance How much training did you do Throughout the winter I swam in the pool about three times a week for an hour each time This was where I started to concentrate on my strokes kicks and breathing and building stamina Then in May when the local lakes opened I started swimming in open water to build up distance swimming One short 3k swim in the week and then a longer swim at the weekend gradually increasing the weekend swim to 7 5k the week before the actual 10k What was the best part of the swim Difficult to say in a way it was the training and lead up to the swim that was the best bit The actual event was enjoyable in a tough kind of way don t get me wrong but I was nervous to start with and then when swimming my mind was on technique breathing sighting the bouys avoiding other swimmers and just keeping going Once the swim is done it s done and it s a bit of an anti climax While one s training for it there is always a goal to aim for and it seems out of reach So when one s reached it it s sort of oh OK now what Could you take breaks during the swim You could stop once per lap if you wanted a drink gel banana etc I didn t stop for any How did you prepare on the morning of the swim any special breakfast warm up routines etc Nothing special for me I walked the dogs as usual had a bowl of cereal and a coffee then set off I had two Sports Gels just before getting in the water but that was it Sports nutritionists would probably hang their heads and wag their fingers at me What was the weather like and did it help The weather was fantastic beautifully sunny and not a cloud in the sky The water had risen to about 19 degrees This and the perfect weather helped enormously Some of my training swims had been in water around 11 12 degrees and I was having serious concerns about spending three plus hours in water that cold Thankfully the warm spell came just at the right time for this swim Why did you choose to support SportsAble I have to admit that until recently I have had no contact with charities of any kind and have never tried to fundraise at all
