Wrapped up last week of training at home with the usual Sunday 1.6km swim at Camps Bay in 14.5 degree water, and then went accross to the 50m Pavillion pool and did a quick 1 km lapping spot on target tempo of 1min 40 per 100m. That tempo equates to 10h00 for the Channel, which some of the best South African swimmers like Steve Klugman and John Dickerson have done - feed breaks, tides, weather etc all included. Me - I’m just aiming to finish the swim this time. Some sunshine  & conditions where I can see a coast - any coast - would be nice!
