managed another 50 today, mainly because there was a nice man swimming in my lane and he had to keep overtaking me so I was smiling at him a lot to let him pass! Was going to get out at 40 but he was still swimming so I thought I might as well carry on, and then around length 46 he started chatting to the girl in the other lane who he clearly knew!!! Just my luck....on the plus side it did mean another 10 lengths done....every cloud eh!
only 310 to go.....
why does that still seem like a lot! I have 3 weeks to go...
scared myself as to how much I'll need to swim in order to complete the challenge so I decided I'll have to swim before work....eek...didn't quite get up early enough and only had 25 mins before the school kids arrived, so did a very fast 30.
oh my still 530 to go.
at least now it really feels like a proper challenge!
I have been in the process of adopting a baby from China since 2006 and with the process taking longer and longer each year, I wanted to do something to stay connected with China. Providing art materials seems such a simple thing to do and as someone whose job is promoting the power of engaging with arts activity, seems kind of appropriate!
