Total Distance: 89.25km
Day 07 – Wallingford to Goring Lock
With this in mind I went to bed early and didn’t set an alarm for the morning. I woke up refreshed and not ill, so decided to get in the water for a later start.
Physically I felt so much better today. Like I was in a new body. I think the rest and the massage last night worked wonders. It was the first rainy day, and the water was a little cooler.
My stroke rate was up and my pace was back to normal. Because of the late start we decided to have a shorter day and stop at Goring Lock.. the next suitable spot was 6km downstream and would take another 2.5 – 3 hours.
I was still struggling to eat the usual amount and I’m wondering whether I need to have larger variety of foods to eat, whilst in the water.
Overall a successful and positive day, which is always nice after such a tough one. We are a little behind schedule now, but will hopefully be able to get a 17km swim in tomorrow.
