Well, it's been a couple of months now since the fundraiser began. Thank you to everyone who has already contributed to my fundraising campaign. I am completely blown away with your generosity.

I'll be posting regular updates in here to keep you in the loop with everything that is happening.

For now I wanted to let you know that I am celebrating. I'm officially entered and ready to go.

The events I am competing in are the 50m in backstroke, breaststroke, and freestyle. I'm also in the 100m freestyle and backstroke.

I've increased my training to 4-5 times and as a result I increased my swimming distance to 2km's. I'm also doing some shorter swim sessions to increase my speed.

I've joined the local gym and they've designed a training program for me to increase my cardio strength.

Yoga has also been a regular go to exercise for me, especially over the past year. I find it beneficial as it keeps me flexible. It also helps me to stay calm and increases my sense of well-being. I practise at home a couple of times a week, especially if I can't get to the yoga sessions.

That's it from me for now. I wanted to keep this short and simple and include a big thank you for your support so far.

I'd love it if my family could come and join me and see me compete in the transplant games in October. I'd be so grateful if you could share this far and wide. Every dollar counts and I really appreciate your support.

Until next time, keep well everyone

Colleen
