Totting up the miles

Time to start adding up the metres I’ve been swimming since getting back from Brazil and to my horror I’ve only managed 5,000 metres since the 17th. of January. Javi our ‘virtual’ trainer and swim partner for the crossing says we should be doing at least 15,000 metres a week. That’s just impossible for me with work commitments, wife, kids, house and garden to maintain.

Really? So if I think like a championship Olympic ultra distance swimmer I will become one? I don’t think so. I think I need something more than a motiviational qoute to get me going.
