Swimathon 2018 #SwimForAll

Tamsyn at Swimathon 2018

It’s been a while since I last blogged, but I wanted to share my experiences of Swimathon 2018 with you. Endless illness I started this year with so much enthusiasm, but the last few months have been really tough. M has caught every illness going. She has had chicken pox, gastroenteritis Read more…


A week where I managed to swim, cycle and run (at last!)

Wow – what a week! On Monday, I wasn’t feeling motivated to get in the pool. I think M knew that Stu was out with his friends watching the Superbowl on Sunday night, so she decided that she’d also like to be up partying. I got very little sleep and Read more…


Planning for 2018

Swimming with a legend

Have you entered Swimathon 2017?

Stuart and M swimming

I’ll be posting a lot about Swimathon in the next few weeks as I’m thinking about it a lot. I’ll be completing my 5k swim at The Quays in Southampton on 07/04/17 (I hope), although I’m a little worried about just how long that will take. (It’s 200 lengths! I’ve Read more…


What I’ve been doing
