Well, I've determined I am doing an Ironman in 2019. Here's the issue. I'm not a swimmer. There seems to be two camps in the triathlon world. There's the swimmers, who hate the running and/or biking, and the runners/bikers who just try to get through the swim without drowning. I am a runner, and swimming has stopped me from trying to do an Ironman for years. But here's the thing. I know I CAN swim 2.4 miles, if I train enough. It makes logical sense. It's just the fear in my head that says I can't. So I must squash that voice, and be positive that I will swim the distance with confidence on November 24. The hardest part about swimming is that you can't "power" your way through it. It is all about technique. So, I must learn to swim correctly, relaxed, at a low heart rate and for a long time. I am excited about learning this new skill! It won't be easy, but I will enjoy the journey and do the necessary work to make it happen. If you are like me, don't let your lack hold you back. Set a goal and crush it! Upward and Onward!
