So I have decided on my day - I shall be doing my discombobulated next Thursday (I will have to delay my donation to my chosen charity though, donation will happen when I get my first pay check for my new job).
So the running bit is ok, the cycling bit is going ok but I haven't been able to fit in a bike ride this week - yes I know there is technically still time but it all depends on if I pop home to Essex for a couple of days to see my Dad (he is baffled by the notion of clothes shopping and wants some help, obviously that something he never had to think about before as my Mum did it).
Anyway so the one I have been having trouble with is the swimming, or rather my chlorine allergy. I already wear goggles and I got ear plugs a few years ago and never really got used to them. Last week after some google research it suggested that a nose clip could really help - one problem with that I have my nose pierced not just once but twice. Anyway I popped to decathlon to look at the options and came home with a nose torture deivice. And with a bit of wiggling I can wear it with my piercings.
Today was my first swim all plugged up, it felt really weird at first, you can't do proper swim breathing but I started to get into my stride and adapt, there was some on going fiddling but all ok, I think I could get used to it.
I did 50 lengths today (worked out to 1km) and the best bit I am not feeling total bunged up, snotty and generally rubbish - hurrah, oh and I managed to swim half a length (10m under water) not bad, need to practice my technique some more and maybe be I will be back up to about 20m underwater.
