Swimming for charity (Part II)

swimathonI completed yesterdays 5k swimathon in 1:50:48. A bit dissappointing really, as I completed the same distance in 1:44:30 2-years ago. I think they were a few reasons why I didn't do as well, chief of these was that I decided not to push off the wall 199 times. I did this becuase I've suffered from cramps in both my left in-step and my left calf on previous long pool sessions. No problems this time although I did tumble turn for the first six or so lengths.

More impressive was Laura Juggins from the club. When I finished the 5k swim, I checked with the lane counter in the next lane and Laura was 20-lengths up on me and looking good for the 10k swim.
