CitroJim's Swimathon 2015

Post by CitroJim » 06 Jan 2015, 18:21

I'm participating in Swimathon 2015 to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care...

This will involve me swimming 2.5Km at my local pool on April 19th.

Anyone who would like to sponsor me in this endeavour may do so here: My Giving Page

Any donations will be gratefully appreciated. I have set myself a target of 180 quid...

Training is well under way. I'm swimming 1Km every morning now and will now be upping that in the coming weeks...

Anyone who is my friend on Facebook can additionally see my training progress courtesy of my SwimTag data.

Many thanks :-D

Training is going well for the Swimathon... 54 lengths this morning which equates to 1782 metres and well over a mile...

I still had plenty left.. Those 54 lengths took an hour and I swam continuously with no rests...

Next Wednesday I'm going for 66 lengths...

I also found out I'm currently holding the pool distance swam record as recorded by the 'Swimtag' system :-D

Very proud of that...

My swim style is settling out to be on the side of endurance rather than speed...

I am sad and gutted today :( :twisted: My Swimtag failed to record my best swim ever...

66 lengths/2.175Km....

I did it but have no proof..

I'll just have to do the same again next Wednesday I suppose...

I have to confess I'm terribly allergic to birds of the feathered variety sadly :(

he dont stop

he calls all the cats by name even the ones that dont even live here anymore ( Jasper, pickles, osca, simba, he hasnt got the hang of Mamaduke fully yet and calls him "Ma",
when we sit down to eat anything he continuously says "want some"
my daughter taught him twinkle twinkle little star in a nice soft voice which he does, he has also altered it to twinkle twinkle little STAR with the star in a gruff voice,
he says to my present cat ( Marmaduke ) "come on then",

good boy ( in a soft voice ), naughty boy ( in a gruff voice ), no!, hello, by, he barks like a dog ( whoof whoof, also like a person saying whoof whoof, he has various different meows ( like a cat ) and like a person saying meow ( i different voice's/tones

just to mention some
