After July's GoTri this was my first attempt at a Sprint distance triathlon and forms part of my continuing training towards a full Ironman in Bolton next July.
My first mass start open water swim / race and my first swim over 1 mile. A lot of firsts for one day, have a read how things went on what was a very chilly morning in London
Having signed up for Ironman UK it is time to get some open water swimming experience. I have had 4 weeks of pool swimming which has seen my confidence and speed grow, now its time to take it outside!
Having not swam properly since leaving middle school in 1994 I have decided to get back into it and learn almost from the start.
