swimathon 09 - dunnit! (just)

(viewed 506 times)

topped off a manic couple of weeks with doing the 5k challenge at the swimathon on friday. orange hat this year to go with last years pink one.

i made it (164 lengths of the 30m pool) in 1 hour 22 minutes... which was 4 minutes slower than last year.

i'm actually pretty happy with that given the amount of time i had to train for this one (6 weeks in total including a week off for injury and a final two weeks full of rehearsals for a last-minute wedding gig). bearing all of that in mind i'm really pleased to have got to the end let alone got near last year's time, which was set after over three months of pretty dedicated training.

anyway, i don't think i could have gone much faster and was absolutely shattered afterwards.

thanks to everyone who sponsored me! we raised £300 for marie curie cancer care. Good work peeps.

thank you!
