Ok, so it has been a long time since my last blog. All is going well and I am on track for the Solo Crossing in February and March 2019. Where to start is the big question?
Over the last couple of months, I have seen the end of my winter training. I managed to maintain 2-3 sessions a week through winter; doing around 10km a week. I am glad that I did, I feel so good for it now!
I am very excited to announce that on the 1 September 2018 I was selected as a Catfish Athlete. Catfish are an Australian Swimwear and Tri Suit Stockist. They design, make and sell some awesome products and deliver worldwide. I will stand out in the crowd at all my swim meets over summer. I am grateful to have Catfish supporting me during the swim season; they are a great group of people. Check them out: www.catfishdesigns.com.au
So to the start of the summer training: I started my Summer Solo Program on 8 October 2018. I am about a week and a half into it with 18km down in the first week, not a bad start. Swimming through winter has made a big difference to the first week back in the Summer Solo Program. The body is feeling great and ready to go!
I have my first swim meeting for the season, this weekend 20 October 2018; the Eurzo North Cot Cold Water Classic. It is a short 1.6km course. This event raises funds for the Leukaemia Foundation. It is a great community event and a great start to the swim season. To all you Western Australians that want to give open water swimming a try or see what it is all about, come down and check it out!
Wow, it is all coming together! So much more going on in my swimming mind, but for now I will leave it there. I will update you all soon.
