I have reached the 3 mile stage. I am a little more tired this week,but still enjoying the chance to increase my Butterfly swimming.

I am really chuffed with the positive comments and support I have received from everybody. A big thanks to you all .

The sponsorship is starting to arrive too. I would like to try and raise £100 for each of the 5 charities I choose,during the year.

Finally I must thank my coaching colleagues who have  provided brilliant training schedules which allow me the flexibility to swim Fly without disrupting the swim for others in the pool.
