Yesterday, Saturday 09/04/11 I took part in Swimathon 2011.
Last Thursday I wrote my column about preparing for it…
But as the clock turned 5:30 and I pushed off I knew it would be fine. And I was lucky enough to have my sister and one of my oldest friends on the poolside counting.
I won’t say it was easy, 100 lengths is a VERY long way, but I did well and beat my own target of completing it in under an hour – touching the side for the final time at 56 mins 15 seconds.
Best of all, thanks to friends and family I have helped to raise a lot of money for a very good cause, Marie Curie Cancer Care. Getting fit in the meantime! It’s a great event, long may it continue : )
