Last year Adam inspired me to train for a triathlon
and I found one that I can commit to each year.
It's a women's only sprint triathlon with all of the fun
and none of the testosterone. However, I have clearly not trained
enough in the swim this year
because when I saw a group of soon to be
certified scuba divers at the bottom of the pool last night
I almost lost it. (As in full blown anxiety attack).
I felt an uncontrollable urge to rescue them because
there was clearly no way they could breath at the bottom of the pool.
They were drowning! (I was delusional)
I tried to convince myself that they were fine but it didn't work.
The swim portion of the race is what I really struggle
with. I've heard some people talk about falling
into a rhythm but can't do it.
I get so tense while I hold my breathe.
I can't stop thinking about
I need some help or maybe just a good tranquilizer
which I'm sure I would love to have in my system while
"I'm swimming for my life!" (I convince myself
of this during my drills so I'll go faster but it probably
doesn't help the problem...)
