Captain Tom’s weekend

When I took on my 100 mile challenge I didn’t realise at first that the 100 things were to be done this Bank Holiday weekend, we have had Beckham doing 100 keepie uppies others eating 100 maltesers so I decided that I had to have at least complete 100 laps to make sure I was going with the theme and then continue it for a 100 miles into August.

Easier said than done, as I needed to do 108 laps to make 1 mile instead of the 68 I originally thought. Wednesday I did 20, Friday I did 45 and today Saturday I was to do 43 to get to that magical number.

None of it was easy – the first 20 on Wednesday I struggled with doing just breaststroke, Friday I did a mixture of breastroke and flapping on my back wildly -this caused my swimming watch to fail to register some laps which only meant extra work for me.

One mile down – 99 to go. Thank you for all the donations so far, have been overwhelmed when I hadn’t really started. Sue Ryder and Manorlands have been in touch as they want to do an article about my fundraising.

In Between the swimming I did get chance to relax and read, the joys of having membership at such a wonderful spa at the Coniston Hall Hotel. Today I forgot to take my phone and my watch refused to record the laps so it was me mentally counting in – so please believe me when I say that I did all 43.

Next couple of weeks are going to be very busy as I have now been called for scans on 4th, 10th and 14th May and results on the 24th May with the oncologist – this will show progression or Stable Mable (always looking for the later)

Will keep on swimming and will blog at the end of May with the updated miles and how I am going. Please give if you can or share my page
