Swimming’s health benefits are well known, but how’s this for an inspiring example of just what can be achieved? Heather Robinson, from Levin in New Zealand, has just celebrated her 88th birthday by swimming 88 lengths of her local pool. Next year, she’ll swim 89. Her regular weekly swimming regime is 3 x 60 lengths (or 1.5km) – oh, and a 25km cycle ride on Sundays for good measure. See the full story here: http://www.stuff.co.nz/life-style/.
Heather’s story made me wonder what challenges Charlton Lido swimmers have set themselves. Why don’t we share them here, so that we can find kindred spirits to join in, encourage each other when the going gets tough and celebrate our achievements when we complete them?
