🏊♀️Ekkkk. I think today’s going to take a little while to sink in!🏊♀️ Wow. What a day! A day I don’t think I’ll forget in a hurry...🏊🏼♀️ Today I did my first Long course Swim meet at Ponds Forge International Sports Centre for their BUCS Uni national competition. I was lucky enough to be given a guest invite by British Swimming.
I managed to get a PB in both races, and in the 50m Freestyle I got 37.32 which is the FASTEST S5 classification time in the WORLD in the past year!!! Ekkkkkk, surreal is one way of putting it!
In the 200m Freestyle I went out a tad quick, so I faded a bit at the end. But I still somehow managed to get 40 seconds inside the qualifying time I needed! Yay! It’s all a learning curve and a steep one that’s for sure!
Biggest Thank you to Dean from Swindon Dolphin ASC for coming up and helping me. And all the coaches I work with at Swindon Dolphin for your endless support and help- Nigel, Jacky, Andy, Paula, Colin, Dean. #dreamteam
Onwards to the 100m Freestyle tomorrow and lots of rest and food this evening.
Thank you to everyone for supporting me both with the ponies and in the pool. It means a lot. Tad emotional, but over the moon!
