It must be pretty intimidating to get in a lane with a tumble turning Brit' wearing a wetsuit. I swam for the best part of 75-minutes with only an occasional swimmer getting in and then disappearing, even so there was a line of people waiting. I stopped and gestured towards two guys, one said "I'm an ex-Olympic swimmer, you'll have to keep out of my way"... based on his swimming, I'm guessing that was a long time ago.
Never mind that Tim Hollingsworth once described sharing a lane with me as "like swimming with an oil tanker". Just 5-weeks to go to Challenge Roth, things are coming along nicely.
