Swim Distance 1.52KM
That was a really hard swim. It was really still and calm. It felt like I was swimming through mud. Felt like it took ages. Maybe it was because I had few distractions as it was so still and calm. Still, I was continually on the lookout and ears pricked up expecting a wave, you just can never be too sure. I swam from the east to the west and then turned round to make the most of the conditions and got some more yards in the bag. Almost at 10k mark now.

Info - I am swimming a total of 100km through the darkness, in the darkest and coldest months of the year off the North Coast of Ireland. My aim...to inspire those who may be struggling in dark times to keep going. I also aim to raise awareness and funds for the depression Charity Aware NI. We all face dark times in life at some point and it can be extremely overwhelming.
Safety - Please don't think that because I am doing this that you too should do this or something similar. I am very experienced in the sea with knowledge that is only gained through many years of exposure to the sea in all her moods. I have a safety and location system in place including continual contact with people on land every time I swim.
