Hello everyone, before I get into this blog I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has donated so far. Your support has been incredible and I have been overwhelmed by the support everyone has shown me and the team. The donations that have been coming in, both recently and way back at start of my journey are really making the difference and helping Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research to one day beat all forms of blood cancers. On behalf of myself, the team and the charity itself I would like to say once again thank you.
I’m sure many of you are itching to hear my own story to the run up to the swim, the swim itself, the recovery and what’s next for me, the team and Team Brophy! Have no fear over the next coming weeks and months I will be sharing my story with you, including all the ups and downs, emotions and thoughts through what I hope to be regular blogs. Please do leave comments on what you want to hear and any questions you have!
As I write this I am currently sitting on the sofa recovering and slowly unpacking my week worth of holiday baggage which I hope explains the slight delay in this blog. I knew after the swim it would be important to recovery mentally as well as physically, where I could relax with the biggest worry being making sure I didn’t get sunburn! I will not go into too much detail as it is one of the upcoming blogs but I hope it will give you a real insight into the effects of putting your body through just under of 15 hours of relentless excise, the training and dedication done in the run up and the after effects and recovery of the challenge!
That’s all from me for now,
