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 10 - Saturday August 9th- The end of the adventure
I was able to catch some of the action down at the open water swim which was fabulous, glorious sunshine, perfect course fantastic day.
I know this was exactly the sort of day, and the very spot when 20 years ago, I was inspired by the open water event so much so I thought I needed to enter it at the next World Championships. Of course this was where reality set in, as the next time turned out to be a very cold and rainy morning at Holme Pierrepoint!
I managed to grab a swim in a very civilised warm up pool, changed and set off to finish my packing and catch the shuttle to the airport.
So what's next for Binge, well I've currently been abandoned by Bob and Teenage Triathlete who have jetted out as an advance party to Lanzarote.
I'll join them next week, in a vain event to keep up this training lark and also to try and put my mile a day challenge back on track. In the meantime I'm having a civilised evening with the house to myself.. I could get used to this.
I'm planning on a training raid at Newcastle's Final Friday Saddo session tomorrow.
600 steady warm up
