This week’s podcast guest is Dee, and she swam the English Channel on 4th August 2019.
Of everyone I have heard speak about their Channel swim, Dee is by far the most positive and optimistic.
She had a great swim. Loved it. Smashed the time goal she set for herself. Got out and did a yoga pose on the beach in tribute to a yoga-teaching friend who had been so supportive.
It is an almost unbelievably positive story.
But wrapped up in Dee’s Channel swimming story is a sense of fate – this was always going to happen. Because no matter what obstacles she came up against in preparation for the swim, a solution always appeared.
Friends stepped in. Mentors appeared. Lucky breaks happened.
Which when you’ve worked really hard to do something so huge, is exactly what you need, I imagine.
This is a very practical, positive description of a Channel swim, with lots of advice for anyone thinking of attempting the swim.
