51 days to go

For the first time in well over two weeks I made my way to the water again. In those last two weeks the temperature of said water had dropped, so it definitely wasn't as nice. Not only that, there was no sunshine and we had to put up with drizzle. 

I noticed a change almost immediately. Two weeks away from swimming and I have to start from scratch almost. I was not able to do more than two under water strokes in a row and I tired quite easily. Mind you, I never was the fittest person in the water, but still...

The course for the triathlon is now laid out as well, but I didn't make it to the first buoy, let alone the whole thing. It was a quick twenty minutes for me, while my colleague went round the buoys twice (the length we will have to swim). Next time I will try to get at least to the first buoy. Not sure when that will be though. 

Tomorrow will be a 'day off', on Saturday we are going to climb another sort of mountain and then on Sunday I will go cycling with the same colleague I went swimming with today. I will have to try and keep up with him, since he is a bit faster than I am.

  3. Crikey ..... 51 days ...... I so wish Mum and I could be there to watch and to cheer you on. Do you think we still have time to organise plane fares and passports?
