I think I'm just about recovered now. that was sooooo much harder than I expected, I was fighting the wetsuit most of the way, ended up doing nearly all of on it my back. Took me 35 mins which I thought was ok, would have been quicker without the wetsuit, but didn't feel cold at all. It was a beautiful day and glad I did it, thanks to everyone for your support, couldn't have done it without you, especially my long-suffering husband, although we did enjoy the break from home, only overnight, but a break nonetheless. Photos are on my fundraising page uk.virginmoneygiving.com/Ja... link, no need for donations just have a smile at the unflattering pictures, my son says I look a lot happier before than after, I couldn't wait to get the suit off, I felt sick and wobbly, but was fine 15mins later. There were members of the Headway team there and it was extremely well organised, but will have to fine tune my swimming technique before I think of doing anything like it again. Funny, I didn't give my symptoms a thought while I was swimming, too busy concentrating on not drowning!!!! Thanks again everyone Love Janet xxxxxx
