Bonsoir from the French coast! Finally made it after 12 long weeks of swimming. If I never set foot in a swimming pool again it will be too soon!

At least I don't have to put up with paralympic turn guy any more :-)


it's not too late to sponsor me! www.justgiving.com/tink-swim is the address you need.

Sixty lengths tonight, which is a whole mile. So really helping on the catching up front!

Nine miles to go. 4 weeks to go. so thats 2.25 miles a week. If I do a full mile each Friday, that leaves me needing to do 40 lengths over two other sessions. That is extremely do-able.

So, www.justgiving.com/tink-swim for all your sponsoring me needs :-)

failed to post this yesterday! did 44 lengths in the pool last night. shouldn't go in the evening really, as I never get to swim for as long as I'd like due to people being irritating and me getting fed up and getting out!

new swimming costume is cool though.

Another 44 lengths this morning, puts me on 648 total. Halfway point is officially 646 lengths. So I am now just over halfway across the channel!!


www.justgiving.com/tink-swim is the place to go if you want to sponsor me, I've got over halfway to my target already but still need more money if I'm going to reach £220 by the 6th December. Please give what you can, its for a great cause.

Yay finally broke through six hundred! Another 40 lengths today, so still on target and all is well with the swim. Although I really do need a new swimming costume - my red one feels all weird. I was constantly paranoid that when I was pushing off it was exposing me!

So this Sunday is halfway through the swim, and I've not quite reached halfway! But thats not so bad, I'm still on target to complete the swim, I just can't really afford to miss any sessions now. 48 lengths today.

Another 40 lengths today. Have decided that a Tuesday-Thursday-Sunday schedule is unrealistic, as I always seem to have a handy excuse not to go at the weekend.

So we're giving Monday-Wednesday-Friday a go instead. Monday morning is (as noted earlier in the week) a tricky one, I mean who wants to voluntarily get up an hour earlier than normal on a Monday. But Friday evenings are good for getting in a longer swim - as evidenced by last Friday being my best session so far.

only 32 lengths today, as was delayed leaving the house and didn't have as much time. Monday mornings are not a good day to get up early!

56 lengths today! Go me! So total is 444, so we're on about 35%. 7 and a half miles. Doing pretty good!

and I was swimming in the fast lane for most of it. admittedly this is because the middle lane was SLOW as you like. Paralympic turn guy was there, and some crazy possibly foreign girl doing lots of really slow technique practising lengths with floats, and then doing lenghts in a really slow butterfly stroke.

fortunately there were no really fast people there, so the fast lane was merely slightly-faster-than-the-medium-lane-usually-is.
