As you might have noticed from previous ramblings on this very site, swimming is not one of my talents. However, being a hobbying triathlete kinda requires the ability to at least swim. In the past, my average ability on a bike and running has masked my terrible swimming. This year however, I’ve spent a fair amount of time in the pool and lake trying to improve my swim…the result is a slightly better swim, but still rubbish! So, come Ironman day in Mallorca later this year, I shall once more wade into the sea knowing that, despite my best efforts, swimming is not my thing. Luckily, I haven’t neglected running and riding so things in those areas should still be OK.
