My 20th anniversary year competing in this event - I can't believe that!
Anyway I did the full 5000m i.e. 200 lengths of a 25m pool, the other three in my lane were all about the same speed we all finished in a minute of two of each other. I did a 1hour 43mins - which I was really pleased with frankly.
I feel bloody knackered now!
My daughter did 100 lengths, 2.5km in 52mins which was very good, but I think she and another girl considered it a training session. I'm sure I saw fly being swum at one point! Mad!
