Can’t believe it’s already been 3 weeks since my last English Channel swim 😱 I feel so LAZY 😅🤣
Had my happy face on when I reached shore 3 weeks ago… I was so happy to be able to:
🚫 stop swimming so hard, especially as I was so low on physical energy
🚫 stop worrying about the impending tide change which would have elongated my swim time (and therefore effort)
🚫 stop unofficially racing my compatriot for 10hrs (I came home 18min ahead).
…We had a good laugh about it afterwards 🤪 turns out he was racing me too!
Straight after a marathon swim the first emotion I feel is not joy, celebration or excitement… it’s relief!! 💯🙏… As Captain Matthew Webb said:
“NOTHING GREAT IS EASY”
The other emotions come later…🎉🥳
(…oh! Did you notice that my Zinc smiley face stayed on my bathers for the whole 12hrs 😆🤪?!)
