UPDATE:

Had a great day, Achived my goal and beat my time by just over 1min so happy as it was harder this year as water was a bit choppier! So time was 42 min 19 secs. Sister and Uncle also completed swim. So whens the next one? When my arms don't ache anymore (well maybe a bit after that!) Well I'll keep you posted. Thank you for all your donations...

 

I am doing the Great North Swim, which is 1 mile swim in Windermere in the Lake District. I am swimming with my uncle and my sister.... We have all been training hard and are looking forward to donning our wetsuits and getting cold! We've been waiting a year, (as last year was cancelled) so fingers crossed no algae this time. 

I am aiming to beat my time from the last time I did it, so want to get under 43 minutes....

I am swimming for Bees for Development - which I think is a great charity, not only helping some of the poorest people make money by beekeeping and selling honey, at the same time helping the environment... so why not sponsor me...
