If you have been following my athletic activities online you may be aware I have been training to swim one mile as part of the Great North Swim. Well due to horrendous weather the swim in Lake Windermere tomorrow has been cancelled. Our B&B was booked, all potential fish that may be encountered had been googled, our picnic was just about to be packed, and near on everyone had wished me good luck - when I got a call to say it had been called off. SO gutted.
So after a little sulking and cursing the British weather (pointless) I have bagged a spot at the Great Manchester Swim in Salford Quays for next Sunday instead. Still bummed out that I won't be doing my mile in a picturesque lake but already looking forward to the atmosphere that will no doubt be fantastic in Manchester - and it means I can squeeze in a little more training - and fundraising - in the meantime!
