Challenge completed!

Well Challenge completed! I swam 100 lengths to finish the 2.5K Swimathon! It felt like a really good achievement to do it in 1 hour and for a very good cause. I raised £140 for Marie Curie cancer care.

So I'd like to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has generously supported me! Next time I will aim for the big 5k Challenge! Taking some tips from the video of amazing world champion Michael Phelps! Perfect!

Swimathon challenge 2013

Well I have 3 more sleeps until my first big 2.5K Swimathon challenge this Saturday to help raise money for Marie Curie Cancer care!!! In a moment of madness in January I thought it would be a great idea to take on a big New Year challenge and swim 100 lengths in a 25 metre pool, I can't believe the big day is nearly here, I'm starting to feel the nervous butterflies now and hoping that I will be okay on the day! 

I'm in the final preparations of training now. I always lose count of the lengths when I'm swimming. I've been working on my technique and just hope I can do it on the day because I've never swum this far before! I will be swimming at my local pool, Penlan leisure centre, Swansea at 2pm this Saturday the 27th of April.

 A very big thank you to everyone who has sponsored me so far, if you haven't already there is still time, it all goes to a fantastic cause!  I've shared a nice speedo video. Motivating on those days I didn't feel like going but was so glad that I did go for that swim after a long day at work! Swimathon donate HERE
