I have registered for a 12-week program to be able to swim a mile comfortably in open water. You can join me at http://www.h2openmagazine.com/
As you are scratching your head wondering why, I hope to learn something. First by having someone else program for me, I am accountable to someone else. I can be lazy!
And perhaps..... To help me overcome my fear. Yes, I am afraid of open water.... I rational fears at best, like the monster under the bed. But alas, these are real. MOST of the time I don't think about it.
As I am rebuilding my overall fitness and preparing for IronMan 2014, I will continue to keep you in the loop.
