August 2011 - The SWIM - Jim Phelan

 

Full details of the challenge are here - https://the-swim.co.uk/team

 

Just to update you on The SWIM. I raised over £500 for Cancer Research and from all of the participants who had raised in excess of £100 and were thereby entered into a lottery... I made the final 40 and was invited down to Brighton for sea trials to select the 2 members of the public who were to join the celebrities and the swimmers on their relay across the Irish Sea from Holyhead to Dublin.

 

It was cruel! To make sure they had some strong swimmers to compensate for the weakness of the celebrities... they invited some top people... previous Channel swimmers, international competitors and members of the Open Water Swimming youth squad so I was 'not amongst equals' to say the least. They started us off with 8 laps of a course that was around 1000m in the sea... that's about 5 miles. Then we had a 45 minute break to cram some food down and went back in.

 

This time they shortened the course to around 800m and we had to do 7 laps... that's another 3.5 miles.... we were told that after the 2nd swim we would have interviews and a debriefing.... but they scrapped that and sent us back in for another 4 laps...2 more miles... by now we were down to the last 13 and I scraped into the top 10 so I was really pleased to have survived... but knew I wouldn't make the top 2 for the team. It was one of the toughest tasks I've ever done... my arms were on fire and my tongue blistered with the salt.... I even burned the back of my ankles as they had 5 hours direct exposure to the sun! But somehow I managed to swim at an even pace throughout and although I was a long way behind the top swimmers, I didn't fall apart like some of the good ones who got tempted into doing the first 5 miles fast and then had to pack on the last one from total energy loss. 5 hours swimming.... 10.5 miles swum... didn't make the team but very glad I did it.
