I am not the best swimmer by any means and I don’t like swimming much either. This is exactly why I have decided to take part in this years Aspire channel swim. My aim is to improve my swimming technique and complete at least 1 mile front crawl by the end of the challenge along with raising as much money as possible for a great charity.
I have completed this challenge previously, all of it swimming breast stroke. If I can inspire even just 1 person to join me and complete their own journey while raising some money for charity it will be worth the early morning get ups. If you don’t want to join me in the pool, the link to donate is below and anything you can spare will be greatly appreciated.
Wish me luck.
