With plans of upping my swimming this next 3months Nov-Feb , Open water swimming is on the cards..
The 1st event of the Open Water Swimming challenge took part on the 5th November and the 2nd on the 26th Nov ..
Myself and the spainiard “Anton Ruanova” managed to gte out from the covers this morning at 9:30am and headed down to the Ashanti Dam near Paarl ..
Arriving with minutes to spare before we hit out 3km open water swim, I met a few fellow triathetes coming to take on the 1km loop 🙂
The water was flat, and the cute lifesaving chicks were on their boards … Water temp +- 20degrees and we did it non wetsuit !
I managed a 3rd spot on the 6th of november, and all I wanted to do was have a blast 🙂
A great turn out, and the 10km and 5km already done, we got body marked and were all into the dam . I will admit, that these kids can really swim and that my chances at a podium in the ” masters categorie” is no easy task !
What a great day in Paarl , and I managed a 40min36sec and 3rd in the 16-30 age group and was just beind me 🙂
MY 1st medal in a swimming event !!!!
Really do enjoy living the life less ordinary !! Love not beeing known at an event and just having fun 🙂
Results are below… Im off for a RUN … PEace out
