Snap out of it!

okay, enough wallowing in the past.
time to move on and see what i can do improve the situation.

the upside:
-my first open water swim is over!
-i managed to finish the swim without needing to be rescued!
-i didn't quit!
-i've got some time to make improvements.
-nothing to fear but fear itself, corny but oh so true.
-i'm playing my edges, getting outside my comfort zone and that's always a good way to grow

for the record:

it was a rather stressful and busy weekend with getting M off to camp and settled, going back and forth between camp, training w/tri-club and back to camp!
......this is me trying to give myself a break loubob!

last place is a starting point, thanks for that susie!

and thanks mia for offering sound advice and moral support.


i'm scared but i'm not a quitter.

Looking back in a positive manner, that's what counts!

even the most expeienced swimmers have trouble in the water occasionally, wetsuits are constrictiing and a little weird, but it has been my expeirence that the more I swim open water the better I got( a very relative term when it comes to me and swimming, trust me!!)and the lione I was told anjd I think it still works forme... what do they call the last person who finishes a triathlon? a TRIATHLETE!!! congartulations you are a triathlete , just like everyone else that finishes before us( And by that I mean evryone!)
cheers,
