Today’s #AspireChannelSwim was a return to the 7am sessions. I had pretty bad insomnia last night and I’d hoped to lie in until 9am and then do a lunchtime swim. But I woke up at 5am and there was little point lying in bed wide awake so I figured I’d get my swim in.
The session was very quiet, perhaps the quietest morning session I’ve seen. I had a lane to myself for the whole hour. I felt reasonably good after the usual struggles over the first 10 lengths. I thought I’d swum quite strongly for the hour. Somehow, though, I ended up doing 4 fewer lengths than either Monday’s or Tuesday’s hour-long swim
