Paul manages 100 miles in 100 days!

paulvA member at Strode Swimming Pool and Fitness Centre has swum 100 miles in 100 days.

45-year-old Paul Vinnell, from Street, was first introduced to the centre via Avalon Leisure’s GP referral scheme. He completed the remarkable achievement by swimming one mile, every day for 100 days.

“I didn’t fancy the gym and I love swimming so I decided to hit the pool,” explained Paul.

“My goal was to do one mile per day, which I’ve managed to keep up with and now I’ve reached 100 miles.

“I have had so much support from my family and from the staff at Strode Swimming Pool. I feel so good fitness wise.”

Paul has now targeted 365 miles in 365 days; a full year of swimming one mile every day. However, his chances may be scuppered when the centres shut down for Christmas day!
