I'm #luckyenough to be one of those people who can just get in the #water, and whip out a 1.2km #swim. #swimmingcomes more naturally to me than #running, however the swimming #traininghas never excited me (prob because I can't actually talk under water!) (For those who don't know, I was a swimming #coachin #southafrica🇿🇦 and I represented South Africa in #triathlonin 2003)
So it's been a while.... But today was my second day back at trying to swim once a week (it's good for my back issue and my current #tenniselbow)
The #pool was soooo busy, and they only had 3 lanes available for #publicswimming : #fast, #mediumand #slow. There were about 5 in each #lanealready.
So I thought I'd take my chances in the MED lane. I soon got frustrated with getting stuck behind someone, so I decided to take my chances in the Fast Lane. I snuggled in between who I thought I could keep up with, and where I thought I would not hold anyone behind me up. This worked perfectly.
#moralof this story:
1) sometimes me underestimate ourselves, think we aren't capable, doubt ourselves or don't know our own #strengths.
2) don't compare yourself to others. Have a good #attitudeand do your best. It's your own #race🏁 Just show up!
3) let those better than you #inspireyou, and hope that those behind you are inspired by you. #focuson every small achievement you may have, and don't get discouraged.
