My Story

I am swimming 1mile in the Great North Swim. I have so far done half a mile at my swimming lessons and I hope to start open water training soon and work up to 1 mile. I’ll let you know how I get on.
It was hard at my swimming lesson today, I usually put my feet down after 2 lengths but I have to practise swimming without stopping or putting my feet down. I need to practise my breathing too. I’m determined to conquer it.
I met Ian and Ceri the other day at his shop. Ian is very kindly providing a wetsuit for me and Ceri is very kindly going to coach me. I am excited and very determined. I hope I do well and when I set my mind to do something I focus 100% on the goal.
I would like to thank everyone for all the
support so far.
I was very excited today to go into The Runners Centre in Lancaster to meet Ian again, and I tried on a brilliant wetsuit which was a big struggle to get on, but I finally did it and it’s a perfect fit...I’m like a pea in a pod! How amazing of Ian to kindly donate a free wetsuit. I feel even more determined now and focused.

Thank You
