I did my sponsored swim on Monday and I swum ten lengths.
Prior to the swim, I was asked how far I would go and I said I will probably do ten lengths, as if that was not much. It was more much than I thought.
The last time I went swimming was in January of this year but the pool there was smaller, about half the size of the pool I was in.
The last time I was in a full size swimming pool was five years ago.
So after swimming the first two lengths, I was a bit out of breath.
Anyhow, I did all ten of my goal and am proud of myself.
I calculated in my head yesterday how much I had made on my offline form and on my just giving page. All together the total came to £648.64.
Headway Portsmouth will be pleased as punch with that result.
And if they set up a sponsored swim next year (which I imagine their will), I will take part in that too but I might set myself a slightly smaller goal of maybe 6 lengths.
Some of the members were talking on the day about setting up a swimming club in aid of Headway. I could get some practise in.
Anyway, be prepared to see more just giving pages in the future :).
