The Past few days training have been great! We swam in Lake Bled today which was great for drafting and open water swimming. Learning to swim on other guys feet for me is vital for my improvement! We did a total of 4.5km swimming today with a group of about 20 triathletes. The Local triathletes from Slovenia joined us and together a great day was had by all with some great training! Check out my swim set on 4.5km open Water swim at Bled Lake by rich02murray at Garmin Connect – Details.
After a great hard swimming set at the lake it was back to base in Radovljica. In the afternoon we had river rafting planned and i was really excited for this EVEN though i was so tired from such a hard swimming session!
The River rafting was great and there were video’s taken and many Pictures but i will upload them from the otheres ASAP! My youtube site will also have some great clips form the experience from the view inside the boat! Check out http://www.youtube.com/user/Rich02murray in the next few days and it will be uploaded!
