🦈 in the water | swim recap!
My swim started in the changing tent where our wetsuits had to be checked overnight due to a decontamination procedure. When I got to my wetsuit I noticed something was missing, minor panic set in – my hood was gone. For this race I planned to wear a wetsuit thermal cap to keep my head warm due to the unseasonably cold temps but on race morning it was nowhere to be found. I looked around for about five minutes and finally, three racks away I found a hood all by itself covered in mud and grass. Little rinsing, good as new, but cold now from being wet.
It was 48º outside and 56º in the water, so I forewent my usual warm up bc I’d likely be freezing waiting my turn to start, so a couple arm swings and light jog was what got me into the water. I hugged my wife and parents. Time to swim!
I jumped into the water clean, actually passing the group who went out ahead of me. My lips caught the cold as did my fingers and toes going numb before I even reached the second buoy.
The L-shaped course meant that we’d have three major turns before heading into the finish. I made the first one, no issues, but as I rounded the corner the beautiful desert sunrise lit up my field of view. Blinded by the direct sunlight, I resorted to swimming with the pack, which worked except I had to keep finding new people to rely on to keep me (hopefully) heading in the popularly decided right direction.
I almost missed the final turn, I got kicked, pulled and all of the other usual swim race fare. The swim would be the strongest part of my overall race and as I headed into T1, stopped for a second, choked back puke and then continued forward onto the bike stage…the race was just beginning!

A handful of Pb3er’s braved the journey north over the bridge this morning to take on the 2.5, 5 or 10km open water swim races at Mosman. Beautiful location, perfect conditions and well run event by @vladswim, thoroughly enjoyed the event!
Very happy with my 9th female overall and 3rd in the 30-39 age group. In a time of 1.16, I am most happy with the 6 minute improvement from my Husky 5km effort end of October. Progress is being made
Big congrats to @sammy_p82 for her massive effort completing the 10km event and achieving her qualification for the Rottnest Channel swim👏

Reflecting on where I was 4 weeks ago tonight following my bike crash while training for next year’s Ironman Texas. I’m still a ways off from being able to swim, cycle or run, but I’m learning it’s all about perspective. So I recently journaled a few thoughts that may be helpful for anyone in need of reorienting their heart this holiday season (esp. my triathlete community): On Nov. 16, I complained because my 1.5 mile practice swim felt too weak. On Nov 17, I gave thanks for just being able to take a breath.
On Nov 16, I complained because I didn’t have the perfect high performance tri bike to keep up with the competition.
On Nov 17, I prayed that I’d be able to one day ride any kind of bicycle again.
On Nov 16, I complained because my most recent 10 mile run could’ve been much stronger.
On Nov 17, joy exploded from my heart because I was simply able to stand on my own 2 feet without assistance.
That’s perspective, my friends!

Running on the grass 🌱 Apply for a feature following the link in our bio and we will publish your photos in our account: @RunningFervor 🙌🏼 This kind of running can be a great addition to your training program. A softer surface improves balance and strength, and it can help prevent impact injuries.
Running on the grass requires more strength to run quickly. If you are training for an ultra-marathon, organize your grass training early in your schedule to build your stamina and strength. You will definitely see a difference when you come back on your usual trail tracks.📍Istanbul, Turkey 🌍 (📷: @nevallina) Follow @RunningFervor for more.
