Henley Outdoor Swim Festival 2022 Where do I start? It was awesome! I spent Saturday at Sawtry Sport For All, a community sports event that allows people to try out different sports and that allows local sports clubs to try and recruit more members. It was a great day and I even got a goContinue reading “”

Training Diary – Hastings

Day 1 On Monday morning we packed the car up with mine, my parents and Regies bags and a few food items before heading off on the road. We got away by about 11am and although I was looking forwards to an intense week of training, I was quite anxious about simply going to Hastings.Continue reading “Training Diary – Hastings”

Coaching Development Day at Swim Cube

  For a couple of years now I have wanted to go to The Swim Cube to have my stroke analysed and see if there are any improvements I could make and for Christmas 2021 my parents got me a voucher to go. I was so excited about finally going and trying to understand myContinue reading “Coaching Development Day at Swim Cube”

2022 Training Blog is a go!

  Training has finally kicked in full pelt and from now on I will do weekly training blogs! Over the past few weeks I have slowly been building up the number of swims I am doing, the distance I have covered and also how many outdoor swims I get each week too. This week IContinue reading “2022 Training Blog is a go!”

Training Update

I haven’t written a training update for several weeks now because I’ve got a bit stuck with what to write and where to start. I think every blogger and writer gets ‘writers block’ sometimes, but the key is to find out why and figure out how to fix it. For me, I think I justContinue reading “Training Update”

2022 Events booked…and training begins!

  This week has been a bit of an emotional rollercoaster and, being honest, my head has been all over the place.  Good for my training, not so good for my pain.

Good Days, Bad Days and some in-between…

  I didn’t post a blog last week as I have been struggling a lot with my pain and fatigue but I am improving, a bit, and I have had the chance to get some decent swims in this week. Monday started with a tough session with BRJ in the pool and once again IContinue reading “Good Days, Bad Days and some in-between…”

Windermere Part Two – Fell Foot to Ambleside

  It was time to set off back to Ambleside, just another 10.5 miles to go and I would have finally completed my 2 way Windermere swim. It had been postponed due to Covid19, I had had emergency surgery 4 weeks before and only 2 weeks before I wasn’t even sure if I would beContinue reading “Windermere Part Two – Fell Foot to Ambleside”

Windermere – Ambleside to Fell Foot

  I woke up at 5.15am on Wednesday morning having only had a couple of hours sleep. Thankfully I had, had the sense to get everything ready on Tuesday night, including talking through my swim plan with my sister. I had also had my final sports psychology session with Helen from think.believe.perform. We had goneContinue reading “Windermere – Ambleside to Fell Foot”

Windermere Training Week 17 – Back in the Water

This past week has been another emotional rollercoaster, but I can finally say that I have decided to attempt my 2 Way Windermere swim despite only having surgery just over 2 weeks ago! As mentioned in my last Windermere blog, the district nurse took my stitches out on the 14th August and told me that theContinue reading “Windermere Training Week 17 – Back in the Water”
