Last Friday after work me and some others from the office headed over to a nearby swimming pool and completed our 5k challenges for Swimathon Weekend 2012 (for Marie Curie Cancer Care).
I was in a team of 2 and managed to do my 2.5k in 1 hour and 15 minutes! Pretty good I thought. I almost drowned at the start (swallowing lots of water) but pushed on through to complete my distance in a record time for me 😀
All in all me and my workmates raised a total of £3685.92 for charity, pretty good effort I’d say. Think I should train up so I’m a better swimmer for next year, it will mean less drowning, more speed and maybe if I’m good enough more distance!
