Getting my aquatic mojo on


Hammerhead Sharks ~ tres cool
Triathlon mojo has been fading big time for me for a while now. Until last week, I hadn't swum since closing the river in September. My last pool swim would have been in May. I've been having swim envy for a couple of weeks as Guylaine has joined the masters. Time for action.

Last Tuesday, I re-instated monster swim night. 3000 meters+. It was awesome. Strangely, I felt great. I followed it up again last night. Again... I felt great. Maybe I'll get back on my bike again soon?
