Yes me, the person afraid of swimming in open water has join a beginner triathlon group. I've join the beginner Tri Star Group and my first training session is tonight, and it's swimming YIKES!
Now I can swim, fairly well I think. But I've never swam laps and haven't had swimming lessons since I was a kid so this should be entertaining. I've bought my swim suit and I must admit it's very comfy. I've got a swim cap and I must admit I have NO idea how the heck you get all your hair in those things, hopefully that's part of tonights lecture (though I doubt it!) or someone will help me.
While I've spent the last couple days with several thoughts of "what the hell was I thinking" I am excited! Stay tuned I'll try and update my blog tuesdays or wednesday with progress reports.
