CLIFF GOLDING’S SWIM CHALLENGE – I am doing lots of swimming in-between weeks as I have my own solo Channel swim booked for the end of July. Hopefully the weather Gods will be kinder this year than last when I had to stop my swim eleven and a half hours in!! When I do this swim I will have three solo Channel swims, three round Jersey swims, three lake Zurich swims, two Lake Windermere swims and a Jersey to France swim in the book. In later age I think I have developed some sort of late onset OCD. Not only do all my labels face the same way in my larder but I have a thing about hat tricks in my swimming. So, with this third Channel swim, if I do another Windermere and two more Jersey to France swims, I will have five hat tricks. Then I can stop and just do the odd relay to keep my hand in.
My true love is and always will be running and Shaftesbury. When I was around 13 I came up to Copthall on a Tuesday club night and introduced myself to Bryan Smith. Joyce was there, Margaret Beecham, Angie Toms, Gerry Elmore and all the names of that time. I thought I was auditioning to join so was delighted to find that wasn’t the case when Bryan said I could just join. He told me I was not a sprinter so to drop my arms and not pump them so much. I have such fond memories of those times.
