Carolyn is taking part in CET does #MHAW. Her challenge is to swim the equivalent of the English Channel in 8 weeks (most people try to complete it in 12. Here's what Carolyn had to say:
"Staying active is really important for your mental wellbeing, but it’s difficult sometimes to make time for yourself when you’re juggling all the responsibilities that you have.
"I wouldn’t say I’m an avid swimmer, but I do find swimming relaxing. For my challenge, I may be taking it to the extreme.
"I’ll be swimming the equivalent of the English Channel, so to break it down a little more:
"I need to swim 32,000 meters (minimum), which breaks down to 1,280 lengths of a pool.
"I have 8 weeks to complete it, over 32 sessions (4 times a week).
"I’ll need to do at least 40 lengths every time I swim!"
