60 Thoughts Every Triathlete Has While Swimming

60 THOUGHTS EVERY TRIATHLETE HAS WHILE SWIMMING, BIKING OR RUNNING: SWIMMING EDITION 

  • Yay, it’s time to train!
  • It’s 4:00am and I’m ready to get in the pool!
  • I mean, 4:00am is a bit early but my race is soon and these last few trainings are key...
  • Got new goggles. I know I look badass in these.
  • They’re the mirror lenses so I look extra cool.
  • Will mirror lenses make me swim faster?
  • I think so! Why wouldn’t they?
  • I’m gonna look so stealthy in the water.
  • I basically swim like Katie Ledecky.
  • A cool 3000 yards today. Easy peasy.
  • Yes, I have the whole pool to myself!
  • Actually, it’s kind of eerie being in here alone.
  • I’ve seen Swimfan.
  • Nothing good happens being in a pool alone.
  • Now I’m scared.
  • I wish someone else would come in the pool.
  • Okay, just relax. You’re not in a movie.
  • Focus.
  • Just do your workout and swim.
  • Okay, 500-yard warm up done.
  • I feel great.
  • I could probably do this pace forever.
  • Forever’s a longggggg time to be in a pool.
  • How pruney do you think my skin would be?
  • How long until my skin gets pruney?
  • Alrighty, I feel like I’ve been swimming forever.
  • How long have I been here?
  • What?! 20 minutes?
  • Ugh. How many darn intervals am I doing?!
  • I don’t know how much longer I can stare at this blue line.
  • I wish I knew how to do flip turns.
  • Should I learn how to do flip turns?
  • Note to self. Watch YouTube videos on how to do flip turns tonight.
  • But I don’t need to flip turns for races.
  • But they also look so cool.
  • And remember, I’m supposed to swim like Katie Ledecky.
  • I have to swim outside?
  • Where there are waves?
  • And the weather?
  • And sea creatures?
  • It’s. So. Early.
  • Why am I here at 4:00am?
  • Who’s crazy enough to do that??
  • Hmm, I wonder if I could swim with my eyes closed.
  • *eyes closed* Okay, cool this is working.
  • Wait, how close am I to the wall!? *opens eyes in panic*
  • Someone jumped in the lane next to me.
  • I don’t have the pool to myself anymore!
  • Must swim faster, remember, I’m supposed to be like Katie Ledecky!
  • Ahhh this person is fast.
  • This is totally a race.
  • And I gotta win.
  • Well, I’ve been swimming awhile and they just got in so their arms and legs are fresh.
  • Okay sheesh, well I’m only doing 100 intervals so you can keep going.
  • Oh. Look at that, I’m done.
  • That was easy ☺
  • Increased my average pace?! Heck yeah!

*Swiftly jumps out of the pool, grabs a towel and in slow motion takes goggles and swim cap off...*

  • Oh yeah, I just rocked that swim workout.
  • When’s the next one?
