It's the Great North Swim on Saturday, it's nearly here. Only one go in the pool, tomorrow morning, before the big one.No point making it hurt, just keep ticking over, maintain feel for the water and hope it was better than Wedneday, when everything felt off.
Years ago, after few hard months before big events, we started tapering down over a number of weeks. The sessions got gradually easier as the day drew closer. Not this time. A week in the sea, an extra hard pool session and then a bit of easy gliding tomorrow.
By 2.25pm on Saturday (hopefully) it will all be over. Time to check in here....
...and go lo-fi. Fish and chips on the water's edge before holing up in a pub somewhere. But not before I have a very hot bath and a lay down for bit.
