58 km de natation en mer en 6 jours !

Saturday 26 January 2019

The January Lanzarote swim camp organized by the Enduroman team (Edgar Ette #1, Rachel Hill #27) was tremendous and eventful.
It was a personal journey but also a great opportunity to share experiences with athletes from England (Chris Leek, Chris Spencer, Calum Muress, Daniel Coughlan, Kate Mason, Claire Smith), from Belgium (Arnaud de Meester), Russia (Anatoly Markin), Kazakhstan (Anel Sytdykova) and France (Thierry Sache).
We all had or own challenge, or own doubts, our own dreams.

After six days, the pedometer read 40km (run at night) and I totalled 58km of swimming.

Among the training sessions spent paddling in the sea was the truly fearsome but compulsory 6 hours test (passed on tuesday with a covered distance of 15km)
Thursday felt slightly like a déjà vu: it was time for the pinnacle of the training...a 10 hours session in the water.

It was mentally exhausting and i had to cope with the routine offered by the sea depths, continuously fighting against the cold of the not-so-cold water (18 °C) which was slowly lowering my body temperature. Also trying to manage nutrition and hydration at the same time. Simply put, trying to pay attention to all the signals my body was sending....

Time lacks empathy and that becomes obvious as you seem to be aware of its ability to contract or dilate while swimming..
A truly humbling experience but also one which feed you with self-esteem.

Our determination to Cross the channel is connecting us to the athletes who already achieved their goal (Perrine Fages #32, Marine Leleu #28, Cyril Blanchard #25, Ludovic Chorgnon #29, Danny Perray #34,  Martin Pritchard #33, Nino Fraguela #31).

Up to us now to make 2019 a great vintage.
