Delicious Dam water :-)

Past sunday was a great day ! Did a long run and was then off to Phisantekraal Dam with Clemens Coenen “Ironman king” Pops and mother with her fancy Canon Camera 🙂

All suited up in my TYR Hurricane wetsuit, we were ready for our photo shoot/Swimming session

With “trusty Pops” on the paddle ski, who needs a life saver at the dam 🙂

All the prep done, now it was time to actully swim for just 40mintues…. Seems like a lot of work, but I find open water swimming really enjoyable 🙂

Clemens Looking good in the water, was really great to have a buddy to swim with… Normally I dont get the luxury company !

TRaining DONE… we were soon of back to Durbanville where KFC lay await !

This weeks training been going quite well and ill be taking it easy friday and Saturday..Off to Durban-KZN on Saturday and will be racing the BSG-energade Triathlon Series at Midmar on Sunday !

Kill then… peace be the journey “Cool runnings “
