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)

Weather halts first Flog on the Tyne
I was hoping that I would be able to check off about 11k in my challenge today as we were planning a swim from Newburn to the Quayside.
But the risk of the sewerage systems overflowing with the volume of water resulted in our swim being cancelled on elf and safety grounds. Gross.
Bother, turned up at Consett and "elected" to swim the aerobic set with Clarkie a 3k straight swim. Actually squeezed out 3200 metres in just under an hour which gave me my first green week since April.
It was mind numbingly boring though! but I'm quite relieved I was talked into the swim at Ellerton yesterday.
3200 straight swim
100 swim down
