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)

Road Trip Day 8 Thursday 7th August - Guardians of the Gloucester Video
I was trusted by them to take the official video of what Colin Stephenson had assured me all the previous evening was "a gold medal winning team". I had to admire his confidence though as they were seeded 4th.
As their heat approached, team mate Brian and I were banished to the bleachers to record their valiant struggle. We were quite happily chatting away when Brian realised that Crystal was in the water! I managed to operate the video camera when she was half way down her 50, oops, but I did capture the rest of the heat which included a stunning performance from them all to finish second.
I did drop into the warm up pool for a leisurely 600 metres though, so not a total waste!
Only the 200 breaststroke left for tomorrow and I can't say I'm looking forward to it, even though my potential British record entry time of 2:23 has been changed to a more manageable 3:33.
