This summer I shall be undertaking a challenge to swim 3 lakes (or 5 depending how it goes) in the Lake District, over 3 days 23rd- 25th August to raise money for Autism Parents Together – Tees Valley.
The planned swim will currently involve:
Day 1 – Ullswater – 11.8km
Day 2 – Windermere – 18.08 km (plus Coniston 8.8km)
Day 3 – Wast Water – 4.88 km (plus Derwentwater 4.6km)
Total 35km (or 48.16m)
I started Open Water Swimming 5 weeks ago and hadn’t really swam any distance save for an event in 2015 which was a mile. My longest swim so far has been 4.1km and I plan on swimming 10km on Sunday.
