Project 365 – Day Two Hundred and Fifty Five – Four Hundred Metres

day 255

This evening my daughter had a special swimming training session booked. Up until now the furthest she had managed to swim non-stop was one length of the pool. Her teacher had set her the task of completing two lengths and I was wondering how she would manage.

As it turned out she did a lot more than two lengths, completing a massive 400 metres without a break. She only stopped then because they asked her to, and speaking with her later she thought she could have done half as much again. She of course earned a certificate for this and a fabric patch which has now been sewn onto her school bag.

I’m so incredibly proud of her achievement. Swimming has never been something I’ve been good at, I learned as a kid and then managed to forget and now I just sink.
