Got up at 6.30am this morning for a swim in Salford Docks... I was questioning the wisdom of this myself I must admit but good experience for next weeks Great North Swim as the water here is deeper that at Boundary Water Park (around 7mtrs) and about the same temperature as Windermere. Have to admit to being quite aprehensive intitally with the depth but settled down for an OK swim. Swam 1 mile in 46minutes. Not the best of times but have never been good at exercise this early in the morning! The Folks from Uswim have been fabulous support in helping me get ready for my challenge next week so all thanks to them!
