MUSINGS AND THOUGHTS
OK. The triathlon is 4 weeks away and I don;t gave to tell you that I am getting anxious and my anxiety comes from the state of my swimming. So much so that I’ve decided to focus more attention on swimming than the other disciplines. Swimming is supposed to be the one where triathletes train the least (relative to the other 2 disciplines) but that doesn’t apply to me as my swimming isn’t up to scratch at the moment. When I become proficient and less clumsy with swimming, then I can start thinking about the other 2.
I went swimming again tonight though I am suffering from the flu. This sunday is the second triathlon clinic in PD so I get another chance to swim in open sea water. Because of the flu, I was seriously considering missing the triathlon clinic but all these thoughts left my mind completely when Grace from GraceTri-Bulations got in touch with me to ask about my swim. She found out about the triathlon clinic and without any hesitation committed to doing it.
So after that, I put on my trunks and went to the pool for a workout (runny nose and all). Last night I swam breaststroke for 750m and it took me 31 mins. Tonight I did the same btut his time I alternated breaststroke and freestyle every 50m. By doing this i managed a time of 26 mins. Maybe there is hope for me after all eh?
I’m still not well and I hope this flu goes away by tomorrow. It’s not a great feeling to bike and run with my runny nose.
