First indoor pool training session!
Last night I had a wonderful surprise supporter as Liv joined me for the swimming training. We did about an hour of swimming, mainly freestyle, and I was buggered! Liv did great keeping up with the Adult swim squad and slept like a rock. We were both a little tired this morning, but so happy to start the journey back to 110% fitness!
I learnt that you have a broad swim stroke and sweep past your leg to get maximum swim power, and to relax into a long swim. I liked that. A water meditation :)
Thanks again to everyone who has donated. You are the difference xx
It will soon be 3 years since my beautiful hubby lost his battle with Cancer. This seemed like a great opportunity to get back to the person I was, who John would be proud of, and raise more money to help with Cancer research. If only the breakthroughs for Melanoma came through 3 years ago! I hope you can help me, overcome my fears and raise some money to help others!
I'm training with Can Too for the 1km Ocean Swim!
1 in 3 women and 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. This means that potentially someone we love may have to battle cancer, and that’s a statistic that needs to change.
So I asked myself, “what can I do to help?”, and that’s where Can Too came in. Can Too provide professionally coached training programs for participants – of any fitness level – to run, swim and cycle their way to a healthier lifestyle and a cancer-free world.
In return, I am raising valuable funds that go towards innovation in the prevention, care, and control of cancer. Since 2005, Can Too have trained over 13,500 participants, raised over 18,000,000 to support 147 one-year cancer research grants through Cure Cancer Australia and Cancer Council NSW.
It would be fantastic if you could sponsor me, or even better join me in a program!
Thank you for your support!
Thank you to my Sponsors
