Sunday 10th January. My Billy No Mates status would come to an end today as Judo and Sumo were due to join us later this afternoon, I wasn’t sure that they would make it prior to today’s sessions so I ploughed on in my splendid isolation. Sunday evening’s session brought some company in the form of Kookie, […]Read More Road Trip Day 5 – Bye bye Billy No Mates
Saturday 9th January – A pleasant surprise as I flipped through the pile of schedules lovingly prepared by EMSC 4.0, today (or at least this morning) was to be a rest day and I can’t say I don’t need it. My swimming might not be very good but at the moment I could sleep for […]Read More Road Trip Day 4 (Sort of ) A Rest Day
Friday 8th January.. A really heavy couple of swims today interspersed with some quality time on a sunbed. Sadly not only did yesterday’s effort, a whopping 7900 metres; take its toll on Binge today, it finished off the Toosmart toosmartwatch… Which died in the middle of this morning’s session….

Wrong I had to drive to Manchester to catch it. I’ve already spoken here about the difficulties […]Read More Road Trip Day 1… A Double Dose of Cramp
A somewhat belated Happy New Year Bingefollowers. I hope you all had a great break and are full of resolve and resolution for the challenges that 2016 is going to throw at us. As you know (from here) I rather uncharacteristically survived 4 sessions during Christmas week, which somewhat begged the question could I possible keep this going? […]Read More A New Year…A New Hope
How did your Christmas Holidays go? In an unusual flurry of swimming activity I managed to hit the pool 4 times after Christmas. Regular followers of they blog will know this is rather a unique event in Bingeswimming lore and I was motivated by the thought that it was going to hurt whenever I started and […]Read More Back in the Swim of things
