Question – how do you get your daughter back into swimming after a good number of years away from national level competition and then having a family?
Answer – you foolishly challenge her to swim the English Channel (or at least the equivalent distance) with you and raise money for charity at the same time.
So with the last couple of weeks seeing us both in the pool regularly and now nearly 11 miles across the 22 mile distance – Lisa and I would ask if anyone would like to support the Spinal Injuries Charity that this swim is helping raise funds for. We all know someone that could benefit whether fellow rider or not.
I know many of you give and also raise money for various charities and realise this is yet another ask.
I know of the 3 Leòdhasaich that have just completed the Flannan Isles Swim and a certain SBC female athlete who joined them for the St Kilda to Lewis swim so under a bit of pressure to complete this especially as its in a 'warm cosy pool' as they said! (The Peak is not always warm )
So, continuing in the warm cosy pool and rejecting any notion of open water swimming - any help will be gratefully received. Info on the challenge is in the links below.
