First 5k .... (Read 719 times)

    Not running 5k, swimming it non-stop. It took 1:27 but my arms survived. I wasn't planning on doing that much but at 3000m I felt good so I kept going and at 4000m I realized it'd be cool to swim a 5k so I kept going. It was really becoming more of a mental battle towards the end then anything. Lets just say weird stuff happens to you when you swim that long. I think I have permanent goggle marks around my eyes now but I earned them. In case they fade I think I'll take a picture and hang it with my marathon medals Big grin

        Holy crap! That is a ridiculously long way to swim! I cannot fathom (get it, fathom? heh) being in the water that long. Congrats on your accomplishment, that is very cool! Q

        Just because running is simple does not mean it is easy.

          What Q said! I would sink like a stone. Great job!
