Hey everyone! To my embarrassment, I’ve realised that it’s been exactly one month since my Channel swim and I still haven’t said a proper thank you to all of you. When I first rocked up to Vladswim in November last year, I was fumbling my way through training, and swimming the Channel was a distant and improbable goal. 3 months later, I left Vladswim fitter, faster (and yes, fatter!) – and feeling like I had gone through the best possible preparation for my swim. More importantly, I left Vladswim with so many new friends, many of whom have either already visited in London or will be over here soon for their own Channel swims.
Anyone who’s trained at Vladswim knows this already, but it bears repeating: the level of coaching, commitment and camaraderie is second to none. I couldn’t have asked for a better squad to train with and I’ve got absolutely no doubt that my successful swim wouldn’t have been possible without you all. Thanks again Vlad and Charm, and hopefully see you all some time soon!
