I am not one for giving up easily but todays swim swept me off my feet.
18 degrees outdoor pool temperature sounded reasonable to me to jump into my wetsuit and give it a try. I actually enjoyed it until I started to do some swimming drills on my back. It made me feel dizzy. I thought it’s just the sense of orientation that I lost when staring at the sky. So I kept going with front crawl till about 800m. I realized I had to leave the pool and put up my feet to get rid of the dizziness. The sun helped but even after taken off the wetsuit and going to the indoor pool the feeling of fainting didn’t pass. So I called it quits for today. Maybe it’s the lack of sleep from last nights fire or the first time back in a wetsuit and swimming in cold water. But it’s best to call today a rest day, listen to my body and try again another day. One powerwoman down but back soon. 🥰
