I don’t know why I’ve been dragging my feet about submitting my entry to the Chippenham Big Swim. Oh, wait. I do. Sheer terror. As previously stated. I haven’t the foggiest whether I can swim this distance or not. It would be terribly embarrassing/potentially fatal if it turns out I can’t.
However, I was pleasantly surprised by how strong a swimmer I was during my dip in Claverton Weir, so I’m probably worrying over nothing. So I’ve just emailed over my entry form (along with a casual enquiry as to whether the swim is with or against the current) and sent my payment via online banking. It would seem there’s no going back now. Errrm… Yay!?
I’ve also joined the Meetup swim for the week after next. There isn’t one next week, but the lady at work who first set me on this wild swimming path might be going, so I’ve given her my number and hope to go next week with her.
