Do I Swim?
Answer: not really! I think I've been in the pool maybe twice this year.
I am signed up for an off-road triathlon, which I have been intending to switch to a duathlon for a few months...
... but now I'm thinking I might just go for it. Swim is only 1000m, which shouldn't be too bad. I'll hit the pool a couple of times next week just to get my swim sense back (whatever sense I had anyway).
Last time I did the duathlon, it put me ahead of the triathlon folks - which meant getting passed by the really strong triathlon riders in the crowd. It was all a bit depressing. If I do the swim, it will be the opposite, I will be passing people as I recover from what will almost certainly be an abysmal swim!
