You, like Walliams, are an inspiration to us all.  So sorry not free to swim
with you

To those who know who I am, and to those who don't, I am now back from
cycling to the Pyrenees and have read with despair the excellent progress
being being made by you all, compounded by the fact that you've swum today
and will swim again tomorrow. This will leave me about 25k behind you all.
But I despair not - Walliams is our example!


I am proposing to catch up in time for swim no 14 on Sep 24th from Pinkhill
Weir/Lock. This is very short notice I know, but if anyone cares to join me
on any of the dates and swims below I'd be delighted and v grateful:


Monday 12th, Tues 13th and Wed 14th Sep: I propose to try to do swims 8, 9,
10 and 11 over these 3 days (Radcot Lock - Tadpole Bridge - Shifford Lock -
Newbridge - Appleton Weir), probably by carving up the total distance of
about 18.4k into three roughly equal lengths of about 6k or so each. My
daughter has foolishly agreed to accompany me on the towpath for safety and
any help required but with only one car there'll inevitably be walking to
the start or back from the finish etc. Monday 12th will be afternoon, Tues
13th will probably span the lunchtime and Wed 14th I hope to have wrapped up
by lunchtime or early afternoon.


Friday 23rd Sep: Swims 12 and 13, 6.2k, Appleton - Bablock Hythe - Pinkhill
- just in time for swim 14 the following day!


Anyone out there interested and able to escape on weekdays for this? I'd
rather not swim alone but don't want to get left behind! The above is
slightly subject to possible change but I hope not. I fear the weather on
Monday will be rubbish, but too bad!
