My First Open Water Swim Clinic

Blog Featured Image

Happy Monday friends! The last few weeks have been so incredibly hectic for me. I actually had two whole beautiful sunny days off this weekend and for the first time, Monday doesn’t feel so bad. Isn’t it amazing how much a difference free time can make?! Now, more than ever, I realize how hard I’ve been on myself while working 7 days a week. I’ve decided to make some big life changes in the near future, but more to come on that later.

A couple of weeks ago I reached out on Facebook and asked some of my Girls Gone Sporty and Sweat Pink sisters for advice on wetsuits. I received amazing feedback and it really helped to speak with other triathletes being this was my first wetsuit. In the process I met a woman who happened to live near me and who was also a member of a triathlete club who practiced at a lake not far from my house. What a small world this is! She extended the invitation to participate in their annual open water kick of swim and I was happy she did. I’ve been looking into joining a tri club but just haven’t had the time or the energy to join one. After last Saturday I know it will be an essential part of my training and I’d be silly not to join.

Here’s some footage from my fist open water swim clinic as well some training vlogs this week. Hope to do more of these to keep myself motivated and accountable.

Happy Running!

    What i don’t realize is in reality how you are not actually a lot more smartly-preferred than you may be right now. You’re so intelligent. You already know therefore significantly with regards to this matter, produced me in my opinion imagine it from a lot of numerous angles. Its like men and women aren’t interested unless it is one thing to do with Lady gaga! Your individual stuffs great. Always deal with it up!
