I am a Triathlete

The day came and went so fast. I had trouble sleeping the night before. Worried that I would sleep through my alarm and doubting if I could really do this. I started to doubt if I trained enough for the event, or trained hard. I had concentrated only on swimming, because I didn’t know how … Continue reading

…and it just hit me, just like that!

I’ve been a bit slack, not posting on my blog. Not because I have given up, and stopped training, I’ve just been so busy. I’ve continued to swim 4-5 days per week pushing myself further and further. I’ve been doing really well. Over 2 months ago, I couldn’t even swim four stokes, and today, I … Continue reading
