It feels fantastic to have reached this point . I’ve also had some publicity in the local papers this week. 

My focuss now is on swimming 50 lengths straight off , as part of a team for swimathon. 

In discussion earlier with fellow swimmers, I hope the trick will be to count one length at a time and focus on the swim. Even with the knowledge that I have done it before, I can’t help feel a little nervous. 

This week however will be spent celebrating my 50 th . I think I’ve earned some cake !! 

Thanks for reading
