Journeys can take many forms. In the July issue of Outdoor Swimmer Magazine adventurer Alastair Humphreys tells how his account of busking across Spain became a personal memoir of a life lived adventurously; ‘Urban Mermaid’ Lindsey Cole recounts her tale of dipping to Scotland, meeting swimmers via social media as she cycled the length of the country; travel writer Patrick Scott tells of a sacred swim in the river Ganges; and reader Sarah Hicks writes about her journey from wetsuit to skins swimmer.
If you are taking on a long-distance challenge, our regular Olympian contributor Cassie Patten gives you top tips on how to recover from a 10km swim. Guest coach Keri-anne Payne continues her series on correct technique, this month looking at body position and rotation. And we have outdoor training session ideas to help you swim in a pack and advice to help you overcome any fears you have of the open water.
