The Swimathon: Saturday 28th April 2018

Six days after the Virgin London we did the Swimathon. It’s a 5km swim and you have a choice of swimming pools you can do it in. I think we have done the Swimathon about 3 or 4 times now, at a variety of locations. In the past the pools, counters and everything had been perfect. It had been a while since we had done one and we hadn’t done much train but we still thought it would be a bit of fun. I think we chose the wrong pool when registering. One of our friends said as a joke “I wouldn’t leave anything in you car at that pool and be careful that your stuff doesn’t get stolen.” Anyway it was fine, we did it which we glad but the counters didn’t count, so we did far too many lengths, it was ridiculous. Then we never got a certificate or medal. The pool had so many children in it and I thought the water looked a bit yellow. To round it off nicely I lost my new watch. We think about that event and now laugh.
