I took part in an organised swim at Liverpool Water Sports Centre on Saturday morning, it was the 2km dock to dock swim.
Although 2km is a long way to swim, I was put to shame as there where other swimmers doing, 4km, 6km 8km and even 10km!
This is equally my longest open water swim to date, I’ve swum 2km in the River Dee which was in 2017 which I’m doing again in 2 weeks time. My longest pool swim is 2.8km, I aim to up this to 3k by the end of this year.
Saturdays swim went very well, it took me a while to get into my rhythm as I was having trouble with my swim cap, once I got that sorted I managed to get much better times on the second half of the route.
