Week 15: 610 lengths (9.48 miles)

After a mad week and an equally mad leaving do at work (farewell Alison – have a blast in Oz!) it was back to the pool last night to finish off my target of 620 lengths this week.

I keep forgetting that the pool closes early on a Sunday, so had to up the pace quite a bit. In the end I did 138 lengths in 70 minutes. Not too fast, but considering the massive Sunday roast I’d had earlier it was good enough!

Just nipped on to the donations site for my son Archie’s school www.justgiving.com/peteswims and the chap that I bumped into last week in the pool has donated £20 to Archie’s school for disabled children. Thanks Jamie! What a star!!

Whilst I’m talking donations, if anyone wants to donate any money at all, know that 100% of your money goes STRAIGHT to the school. I am not taking out a single penny out of the pot for the cost of the swim (which is £2300). It always felt wrong when someone does something for charity and raises lots of money and then takes out a whopping chunk for costs!

You can rest assured that if you donate any money it ALL goes to the school and is very well spent. Little Archie and his wheelchair-bound buddies salute you!!
