Anyone interested in doing the Aspire channel swim with me?

information here Basically you swim the distance of the channel in your local pool over 12 weeks (15 Sept - 7 Dec) and raise money for people with spinal injuries.

I haven't registered yet as I'm trying to find a way to do it. Our local public pools shut at 7pm most nights and I need to swim later than that. I reckon I'll need to go about 3 times a week to get the required number of weekly lengths in.

However, if I can join a swimming club or find an affordable gym to join I will do it.

Wondered if anyone else was up for it or into providing mutual encouragement......

i am a commitment phobe tho

but i could manage the lengths

but i wouldnt know anyone to raise money from so might be a bit pointless

I don't think I'll raise that much. It will just make me do the lengths.

oooh do it do it.

I'll have to do 148 lengths of the 20m pool I'm using every week.
