Ninety Percent Physical... and Ninety Percent Mental

    Newer Older

    The annual August 3rd celebration of my Channelversary, and a photo of me taken by my partner during a recent 10 kilometre swim. Being both a swimmer and a photograher is a problem, as I always choose swimming over photography so I don't get to take as many shots of swimming as I'd like and have very few photos oy myself swimming. It's said by Channel swimmers that the effort is 90% mental, but I've always felt while true in one way, it forgets the huge training and physical effort also.

      Well done! (intrigued by object in water in front of you - is it a carrot?)
