Today marks the seven week point, meaning there are just 49 days until my swim.
I am now into my last five weeks of hard training. After that I will taper down for week six, and rest for the week prior to the Channel crossing. I have used the remaining few days of my annual leave from Dovetail to book several Friday's off, and Ali and I plan as many trips to Bournemouth as the weather will allow.
It's all getting very real now. An ex army colleague, I an Davies, embarks on his relay challenge this week. And with the season well underway now, challenges are being attempted regularly.
My JustGiving total currently stands at £5.500, with a further £360 still to be added.
