Last Saturday was a great sunny day, and there was nothing better to do than to take part in my latest fitness challenge. Being part of the #swimathon15 #blogsquad team was a pleasure, and I am proud to say that again I managed to complete another fitness challenge, my number 3 #swimathon challenge.
By the way, already planning to do it again next year, but with my 8 year old daughter Isabelle!
This year I was training more than last year as I set myself a challenge to get out of my comfort zone of swimming breaststroke, and go for #2.5km but swimming only front crawl.
Can you spot me?
After about 3 months of intensive training I was confident I could do it, and also once managed to do so in 1 hr and 1 minute when training in my local Bushey Grove Leisure Centre. Unfortunately the time they offer for the Swimathon challenge is on Saturday evening, which I did the first time back in 2013, and for me that is the worst part of the day to do any exercises so I again went for the Watford Central Leisure Centre instead.
I am proud I completed the challenge, but of course as it happens it is very different on the day, with all the people in the lanes I did not managed to beat my personal best, which I was a bit disappointed about (also my watch was saying something different), but only for a moment as soon I realised that it was an achievement for me and most importantly that I am again doing it to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care, and hopefully will reach my target if not more.
Now it’s your time to show me your support!
