If your gonnadrink beer at 7am it might as well be a @brewgooder clean water 🍺 and you might as well drink it on a rock a couple of miles out to sea 😀! Was a bit anxious about this morning swim , being the first proper open water swim since I lost my arm. But as soon as I hit in the water and started making waves it all turnt to focus and clarity .
It feels so vitalising to get up early get in the big blue and get those miles in as the sun comes up.
A couple of times this last week I've felt a bit gutted or down a lil which is really rare for me. I think these sort of feeling can creep up from overthinking stuff some times. I find the best thing to do is go out and get humbled by a force much greater than yourself something that will require your whole attention . Weather that's a yoga mat , or a mountain or the open sea. Anything that's forces you to be in the moment and stay focused can really help clear your mind .
As I was pondering these thoughts, waiting for a passing boat, on my swim back from the breakwater this morning. I was nudged back into action by a 🐬 swimming beneath me. Watching it dart off across the 🌊 was an incredible way to start the day .
You never know what amazing experiences your missing by staying in your comfort zone. Step out and challenge yourself , however that may be 😉😊
Time to plot a new fundraising adventure I think...... #openwater #seaswim #outdoorswimming #amputeeadventures #onewingedwhale #breakwater #plymouthsound #ethicalbeer #adventuretraining #openwaterswimming #sunriseswim #wildtraining #openairgym #adaptiveswimming #plymouthporpoise #makewaves
