Sorry I have not been in contact over the past few weeks time is going so quickly and the Arch to Arc is just around the corner. I have been extremely busy at work over the past weeks which have had a knock on effect making my training very hard. I went to Weymouth for another long swim with my wife Joanne yesterday. Sickness when swimming is still an issue, I did try some motion sickness remedies.  However, they did not make much difference, every few hours I was sick!! We are back in Weymouth next weekend for another swim session… 

I would like to say a massive thank JLG Industries (for those of you that don’t know JLG Industries, Inc. is the world’s leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of access equipment - www.jlg.com) for coming on board and sponsoring me. I am really am very grateful for your generous help.

WEYMOUTH SWIM

This weekend Joanne and went down to Weymouth for my first six hour swim. This swim went well however, I found it really hard to keep my food down while in the sea and swimming. I was sick four times in six hours – never mind it’s just something I am going to have to get used too.  I do believe long distance swimming really is one of the toughest sports in the world. 

 A quite week for me this week and back to Weymouth next week for another six hour swim – I am looking forward to it!!

 Last weekend I went to Guernsey with a group of friend and my film production crew (Caldwell and Fisher productions) to swim from Guernsey to Sark. Sark is an island about 10 miles fromGuernsey I completed the swim in 3 hours 20 mins. I did this swim with a friend Hamish Reid who is swimming the channel two weeks before I begin the Arch to Arc. We had a fantastic weekend and it was a good first taster to sea swimming.   

This weekend I was meant to be swimming in Weymouth however, due to bad weather condition the boat pilot cancelled the swim – hopefully my firstWeymouth swim will be next weekend…..

BIRTHDAY WEEK

Hi Gang!

Another busy week at work and on the training front.

Caldwell and Fisher productions visted on Tuesday. Pebbles and Gemma will be producing a documentary about the Arch to Arc and the tragic disappearance of my cousin Blake. - I know they will do a great job.    

I turned 27 on Wednesday, another year older and as they say another year wiser. I took the night off training and went out for a Birthday meal to the local pub with the family - had a fantastic time. The picture this week is of the birthday cake my mother made for me, yes I am very much a Mummy’s boy!!! Thanks Mum the cookies and scrunch were awesome.

Training consisted of a steady week of swimming; my ankle still has not fully healed after the run in with the rabbit hole. I am starting to feel a bit more confident with swimming but have got a lot more hours of plodding up and down the pool to do. 

I would like to mention one of my sponsors, Forgoodneshakes. They have been fantastic, and have supplied me with plenty of their recovery shakes. These I have been using after every training session, I must admit I do feel strong enough to complete a quality work out the following day.
