Sweaty Betty blog: Swim
Empowering Women Through Fitness
We've already seen one half of this fitness-loving duo share her Diary of A Workout Wardrobe; now it's her twin sister Wah's turn. LA-based Wah has run a total of 18 marathons, and deems her personal best as her completion of the Oxfam Maclehose race, running up and over 10 mountain ranges in Hong Kong in under 24 hours.
Even though I have been absent from my blog, I have not let you down in terms of sporting activities: Yesterday, surfing with the kids at polzeath, Cornwall. ( in my fab new sweaty Betty wetsuit made by local Cornish manufacturer, snugg) Last week, wake boarding and skiing on lake near Reading. beginning of the month, my first triathlon. Super sprint distance at Dorney Lake, Eton. I did the time I wanted (although I didn't beat my husband ;) unfortunately) - was ok at swim, v pleased with my cycle on my gorgeous new specialized dolce bike and bit slow on the run. Big relief to get it over and done with, but enjoyed it and will definitely do it again. The best part is the varied training you do. So good for your body and much less boring than just one discipline (all helped OF COURSE by my Sweaty Betty trisuit!). Training now a bit addictive.. No bad thing I guess. Running on the Cornish moor this morning for 40mins without seeing a soul or car was bliss.read more
I've been busy with my training for my tri in July. I’ve been doing quite a bit of swimming in the sea in our AMAZING wetsuit, which I’ve decided to swim in for the actual event because even though it isn’t slick skin all over, the arms are super stretchy and I can swim fine in it.
I’ve also tested out our trisuit and I absolutely love it. It is in sensitive, the miracle Italian fabric I love because it is super supportive, lightweight and dries really quickly. 5 minutes into cycling after swimming in it, it seems to feel dry again.
I've got renewed energy and zest to go out running and swimming in the high summer fluoro collection, although I must admit, running on the Cornish moors during half term, I definitely scared off the local sheep and probably a few farmers.
We’re just signing off next Summer’s designs inspired by themes that range from Alice in Wonderland to the 1930’s British seaside. I’ll be making sure we have a great range for triathlons next year too.
