First Ever Open Water Swim 28 July 2012

Home, ParaTriathlon & Open Water

You are never going to believe this! I went to Stubbers Adventure Centre in Upminster, Essex to give Open Water Swimming a try. I was so nervous, the thought of swimming with FISH gave me goose bumps!

But I was determined to give it a bash even though I knew there were going to be FISH in the lake, Keeley Bullock one of the coaches from SwimForTri leant me a wetsuit.

I put the wetsuit on and proceeded to the waters edge, I was now getting closer to those FISH. I did not want to look frightened in front of the other experienced Tri-athletes, So I gritted my teeth and started walking closer and closer to those FISH it felt like I was in Jaws the movie. I slowly edged my way into the water first my feet then my body and before I knew it, I started swimming, I could not stop thinking about those FISH.

 But once I got in, it was surprisingly enjoyable; not that bad if you don’t think about what is in the water. I am so proud of myself right now. By the way, did I mention there were FISH in the water? I am such a brave girl. I feel all grown up. sitting here grinning like a Cheshire cat. lol
