Tonight was my last training swim - woohoo! I can't believe when I started this deal I couldn't even swim and now I can do 2400 meter workouts. That is insane! Mostly, it is a testament to what a good coach Susan Bradley-Cox is. She has been awesome to have as an instructor and I would still be doggie paddling if it weren't for her support, instruction and dedication to TNT participants like myself.
It was a bittersweet feeling knowing tonight was my last swim. I wouldn't exactly say I am fond of swimming but it is has been nice to learn a new discipline. It is good to know that I now have a cross training sport that can be utilized no matter the season. I have been worried (and still am) about the tri being over and how I am going to maintain swimming shape in the event that I want to do more. Susan has jokingly said this whole time - "you'll join masters and keep swimming", but I haven't really been sold on that. I am now. I just don't want to have to re-learn swimming technique and I more so don't want to lose/lesson my level of swim endurance. So...looks like this will continue to be something I do......even if only once a week.
I can't believe that the tri is only three days away! ARGHHH! Scary! I know I am ready but that doesn't calm the nerves. Stay tuned for more info......
