The continuing quest of Binge Swimmer to take swimming seriously, (but of course not too seriously) Having failed miserably in 2012 and crashed and burned in 2013, my aim for 2014 is unsurprisingly; To swim the equivalent of a mile a day, (that's a little under 590,000 metres for the metrically challenged amongst you)

Girls on Tour: The Trip to Trieste Day 2 Lost in Translation Saturday 5th July
The Italian day was focused on the over 65 years and they had thought about trying to arrange a Guinness world record attempt for the most over 65 year olds in a relay.
The day started with a tour of the facilities which were incredible an indoor 10 lane 50 metre pool, Outdoor 50 metre pool and a diving competition pool.
the medical profession and local government.
Now this was not as informative as you may imagine because it was conducted in Italian and my language skills just about manage to communicate in and comprehend English.
Shazza and I were assisted by the LEN rep Katharina (who spoke no fewer than 6 languages engendering feelings of complete inadequacy in me) and pretty much picked up the gist of it.
Whilst photos and presentations took place we managed to sneak into the outdoor pool for a quick swim (a rather token 600 metres).
Our day concluded with a meeting to discuss the project and results and then Shazza and I hit the Beach.
Anyway it was a gorgeous early evening and we covered a very civilised 800 metres (extremely rough estimate) head up breaststroke before dragging ourself off for dinner.
