Today is day six of my training camp out here. So far I’ve been good and hit all my daily targets. I find the second session the hardest (I swim for three hours then have a break, then another three hours and have a break and then finish with two hours), I’m always quite sluggish and it’s tough to get back in the water. Not sure if this is psychological or to do with nutrition. I tried two four hour sessions yesterday and it’s working much better.
I’ve been stung a few times in the last few days. They’ve all gone away with the exception of the one on my neck which keeps opening up everytime I swim.
It’s been overcast the whole time I’ve been out here but have still managed to get some amazing tanlines: goggles, watch and trunks! I’ll get some photos up when I get home.
Only four more days to go after today and I’m looking forward to a rest! My left shoulder is aching a bit but is doing okay. There have been no real waves here at all to test it so can’t really grumble! I’ve been told it’s 3degrees in the Serpentine in London-probably shouldn’t tell them it’s a toasty 16 here!
I’m going to be recruiting some people to join the tean in the next few weeks. Watch this space.
