Wow, good for you hatter.
That wasn't meant as sarcasm by the way, I cant swim well either but feel i should take advantage of being near the sea.
Would you recommend improving in a swimming pool first before attempting open water?
I find them completely different beasts. I can swim "ok" in a pool but get scared of open water (it's the fish... the fish i tell you).
I love tri - but cant swim fast for toffee. I've done a few sprints and love them as the distances are so short but I wish that I could do a 400m swim and then 50k bike and a marathon afterwards
I'm going to invest in a crab suit, and run sideways.
PLEASE do and take pictures!
A friend of mine Rik broke a world record in London for the fastest marathon dressed a pirate. He already owns the british record for running the most number of marathons in a year (136 i think).
SO... i'm now the laughing humilation of my office. I'm currently in a two week stint of being onsite at our vendor. EVERY run and walk i've done i've got hopelessly lost. Yesterday I was given a map, today a tag: if lost please return to....
But some good news. Went to a vet here with Boyska to get him checked out for his trip to the UK and was very happy with his check up.
- Perfect muscle condition, strong heart and lungs, great coat and teeth and a lovely disposition. His heartbeat is a little slow but he said that this was due to his "topconditie"
He said that normally he sees huskies who are overweight or have no muscle definition at all. When I mentioned at the beginning that he runs with me every day and gets a long walk in the evening he smiled as if to say: Ok, yes dear.... then after checking him out - said: crickey - you werent lying. Very happy furmama this morning!
