5000 laps swum and 250km.
25th consecutive 10km swim. That's 5000 laps of the 50m Sandford Parks Lido now swum. Struggled this afternoon, tired, poorly fuelled and generally hard work. Was late after spending half the morning removing a foreign body from a dog's intestine. Hopefully the little fella will make a good recovery but it certainly didn't do his intestine any favours! Tomorrow morning it's back in the water at 6.30am. I'm dedicated 26 to Kate Nimmo. Kate is a brilliant local swimmer. She's supported me on loads of these marathon swims and is a great training buddy. She's going down in Brownsea this year though, not letting her beat me again!
