On Saturday, I was able to swim for the first time in a year!!!!
You guys should have seen me, I was pretty much jumping up and down when my sister in law said she could watch Andrew so I could go!
The Triathlon Club swims in the lake at New Town from May to August. (this was the same lake I swam my first tri in two years ago)
When I arrived, I was so nervous! I stopped to ask a few girls what to do. I was completely clueless haha
After checking in, talking with a few people (I even ran into a girl I swam in highschool with), it was time to jump in the lake~!
The water temperature was 73 degrees and perfect. I stepped in and took off…I little too fast. I actually started to freak out for a minute. Mostly because I wasn’t breathing like I should. Once I actually focused on the strokes and breathing every third stroke, I was golden.
The lake has three buoys that make a triangle and once around is about 0.5-0.6 miles around.
(sorry, arrows won’t show up. But this is the man made lake)
After my first warm up lap, I went on the second. It felt like heaven haha. I was in such a groove and didn’t zig zag all over the place (which is the hardest thing in a lake).
During this lap, I was thinking about how I was going to blog about this to you guys! haha. Eventually, I just told myself to stop thinking about that, and just to enjoy the experience.
I can’t wait till the next time I can go!
