…..I’m doing a sprint triathlon later this month… and I’m not particularly looking forward to it.
When I signed up for it I was excited about more bling & by the fact that this year I should be a fair bit quicker than I have been in the past.
I’ve done a marathon (well sort of), a half marathon & I’ve been spinning & cycling all through the winter 😀
There’s a sticking point however….
….I haven’t managed to bring myself to swim again, since Weymouth Challenge in September last year….
I’ve had a bit of a dip, a loss of mojo, in the past week or so. I think it’s because I’ve probably pushed myself a bit too much with afore mentioned running/walking. The cluster of migraines has been a bit of a give-away, my poor old body needs to rest…
But the thought of getting in the pool has been a real turn off – I watch the mad Friday Fresheners getting in the sea every week & think I should join them… it does look fun… apart from the water and the swimming bit
I’m under prepared & hopefully I’ll get at least one swim in before the event…. One would be good…
I want to do well and prove to myself I am getting better, but obviously not enough to get my arse into gear and get swimming again. It’s made me realise that what I achieved when I did Weymouth Challenge was a big deal, bearing in mind how much I really hate swimming.
I kidded myself that I was ok about the swim, but I wasn’t really and I’m in no rush to swim…at all…again…ever…
Look out for me on April 24th… I’ll be happy once out of the pool….. 😀
