‘The swimming pool is my office and I like to be the boss in my office’
Dawn Fraser – an Aussie Olympic Gold Medallist, swimming.
I’m doing an aquathlon tomorrow, just a cheeky 800 sea swim, a 5k run and a 400 swim to top it off.
Truth be told, am terrified…I signed up for it in a moment of madness post triathlon. My logic was, if the lake swim was tough (my weakest discipline) then a sea swim would be worse.
Sooo, if I did a sea swim and survived, a lake swim in my next tri would seem like the proverbial breeze…now on my sofa and contemplating my 6am start I am beginning to doubt my sanity (many probably did a long while back). So I’m going to look to Dawn Fraser’s logic for inspiration instead and calm my nerves…here’s hoping it works! It definitely worked for her, although not sure me repeating the phrase non stop until tomorrow will turn me into a swimmer of her calibre, I’d take a smidgen of it.
Hope you all have a great weekend. My laptop has unfortunately finally died and gone to electronic heaven, and until I somehow manage to pay for a new one my blogging may be rather sporadic. Very disappointing as I have lots of things I want to share. I shall save them…
