Right decision, but absolutely gutted that the @RedBullUK #neptunesteps is cancelled after being postponed from March. Oh, well, let's hope next year fairs better! #uktrichat #ukswimchat #swimming #openwaterswimming #redbullneptunesteps

Heute traf das erste Shipment vom neuen Teamsponsor „OTE“ ein. Greens, Supplements und auch ein paar Treats für Zwischendurch. Zusätzlich habe ich 50 Sachets der ersten Badge „Super Gel“ erhalten. Jetzt geht es ans Testen. I’ll keep you posted! Trainingstechnisch läuft es – wie schon das komplette Jahr – sehr gut. Trotz der vielen Rennabsagen, konnten mein Coach und ich die Spannung und Motivation hoch halten und setzen immer wieder kleine zusätzliche Reize, beispielsweise mit den Ironman VR Serien. In einigen Wochen steht die erste virtuelle Langdistanz an und ich bin gespannt, wie sie läuft. Im Angebot sind mehrere Formate: 7 Tage für die Langdistanz ohne Sessionlimit, das Ganze mit 3-Tage-Limit, 17-Stunden Run-Bike-Run oder „the real thing“ 17-Stunden Swim-Bike Run. Ich habe mich für den 17-Stunden Swim-Bike-Run entschieden. Diesmal geht es ausschließlich ums Finishen, da das Rennen als solches schon eine kleine Herausforderung wird: Freiwasserschwimmen im Oktober und dann das Radfahren und Laufen ohne Zuschauer und Mitstreiter… ich bin gespannt, wie ich diese besondere Herausforderung meistern werde. Ich freue mich jedenfalls riesig drauf. #triathlon #triathlontraining #trihard #triharder #welovetriathlon #trilife #swimbikerun #challengefamily #ironman #ironmantraining #triathlonlife #ironmantriathlon #triathlete #triathletelife #teamerdingeralkoholfrei #spoostyofficial #fcsptriathlon #ironmanvirtualclub #IronmanVR27 #openwaterswimming #otesports @swimbikerun .coach

A very cold swim at my favourite beach Ballyrisode this morning. Maybe one of my last few suitless swims this Autumn. #cork   #westcorkfood   #atlantic   #wildatlantic   #Schull   #westcork #ballydehob   #fastnet #nad morzem #wakacjewIrlandii #Błękitneniebo #szczęśliwedni #Alladodelmar #vacacionesenirlanda #cielosazules #swim #openwaterswimming #seaswimming

Back to the Chalky - Had a chilly yet lovely dip with a local lady pre work today. I have a ordered a new @fluvalaquatics thermometer to check the temperature, a cheap and good bit of kit to understand your own personal winter swimming limits. I wore gloves and neoprene socks today which really helped. I also wore my new bikini from @alpkit today teamed with the neoprene @neonwetsuits bikini bottoms for added warm. Great bits of kit just wish @neonwetsuits had more sizes so I could get a full suit. - KIT Robe: @dryrobe Hat: @passengerclothing Kit bag: @uludrybags Flask: @corkcicle Mug: @keepcup Bikini: @alpkit Bottoms: @neonwetsuits Camera: @goprouk Hero7 White - #openwater #swimming #openwaterswimming #swimmer #wildswimming #siltsaltsludge #51degreeswim #landlockedtribe #swim #getswimming #mypursuit #gutsygirls #nudgecommunity #risefierce #swimwild #HertsSwimBuddy #HertsSwimBuddies #theoutdoorswimmingsociety #outdoorswimmingsociety #dryrobe #dryrobeterritory #HertsSwim #hitchin #hertfordshire #herts #swimhertfordshire #girlsthatswim #OWS

Had a lovely swim with my eldest daughter last night 🏊‍♀️ I only started open water swimming in lockdown because all the pools were closed and we missed swimming so much but I absolutely love it ❤️ and will definitely be carrying it on. Have you discovered anything that you love in lockdown that you will be carrying on? #openwaterswimming #mummyanddaughter #mumof3 #postlockdown #bubblebabiesleicester

Our first swim post equinox. It didn't last long with it being a chilly 8 degrees but it was still lovely if a bit stingy! Coffee at @askham_hall cafe did the job warming us up after! Fingers crossed we manage to keep going sans wetsuit! #coldwaterswimming #openwaterswimming #wildswim #wildswimming #cumbria #outdoorswimmingsociety

Bit of an exciting email this morning. * A few days ago I finally got the confidence up to email Swim England and British Swimming questioning and raising the issues of disabled and adaptive open water swimmers. I asked why there are no events, no classifications and why there is a huge gap for disabled athletes in this sport. I realised that it is never going to be a level playing field for a disabled athlete when entering an open water event and I believe that's wrong and hope to change it. * This email is from the CEO of Swim England showing that she has read my message and is going to look into the issue further. It's not much but it is a start and all changes have to start somewhere.... #adaptiveathlete #adaptiveswimmer #disabledswimmer #paraathlete #paraswimmer #disabilityadvocate #change #disabilityspot #inclusive #openwaterswimming #swimwildandfree #outdoorswimmer #outdoorswimmingsociety #swimoutdoors #herspirit #striveforbetter #progress #progressnotperfection #itsastart #startingpoint #ceo #swimengland #britishswimming #wheelchairuser #wheelchairathlete #wheelchairsport #confidence #progress #levelplayingfield #1stepforwards #advocate

Over the last few weeks I’ve loved jumping into the car and heading off to @racehub .uk all wetsuited up, ready to plunge into #mermaidmode ! 🧜‍♀️ 🏊‍♀️ 💕 There are so many benefits to swimming but did you know that open water swimming offers a few more - both mental and physical? Some of these benefits come with the temperature of the water - it’s a bit cooler and that’s good for you! Health benefits include 🧜‍♀️Increased metabolism 💖 Swimming in cold water makes your body work harder to keep warm, increasing the number of calories you burn🔥 🧜‍♀️Better sleep 😴 The cold water stimulates your parasympathetic nervous system which promotes feelings of relaxation, calm and contentment helping to deliver a better night’s sleep. 🧜‍♀️Better circulation 💖 Jumping into cold water and the extreme change in temperature signals to our heart to pump more blood to our organs. Circulation is improved, and toxins are more readily flushed out of our system which is said to lead to clearer skin and a healthy glow 🥰 🧜‍♀️Increased happiness 😊 Immersing yourself in cold water can take your breath away and boost your happy hormone dopamine - a hormone that creates a feeling of euphoria, excitement and enjoyment. You get a greater surge in happy hormones exercising outdoors compared to exercising indoors 🧜‍♀️Boosted immune system 🤸‍♀️ 🧜‍♀️Keep safe by swimming in a group and know your limits, joining an organised session like the ones taking place at Race Hub is a great place to start. ✅ 🧜‍♀️ . . . #justswim #swimfitness #swimfit #openwater #openwaterswimming #swim #swimming #triathlontraining #swimbikerun #outdoorswimming #triathlon #triathlontraining #thisgirlcan #fitgotreal #fitforlife #tritraining #outdoorswimming #tryingtotri #uktrichat #mumlife #mumof3 #personaltrainer #personaltraining #meltonmowbray #valeofbelvoir #mermaid #lakeswimming #220gram @220triathlon @zootsports_europe #swimmersofinstagram @nowcauk

This was the first swim where it felt warmer to get in the sea than be out in the cold air. The first swim where it became apparent that it was increasingly going to be the hardcore crew, as summer swimmers look out at the grey and change their mind. But this is my favourite kind of sea - when big swells lift me up and all I can see is green-grey sea, white-grey surf and blue-grey skies, I feel so calm. The muted colour palette is so soothing. I swam with the Blue Tits for the first time today, and got my badge - 22 minutes of good clean fun! #FatSwimmer #HAESSwimmer #FatAthlete #HAESSwimming #TheSaltLife #OpenWaterSwimming #ColdWaterSwimming #BlueTitsChillSwimmers

COLLECTING THOUGHTS 🌊 Each time I swim in a new, wild place, I pick up a pebble or a shell, taking a small reminder of some happy adventure home with me. 🌊 Over the last five years the collection has piled up, and what started gathered in a small handmade blue and white bowl now needs a second, larger dish too, and even then, is barely contained. 🌊 There is a flint arrowhead, a rare lion scallop - found on the east coast on the day a rogue wave pulled 6 year old me off the beach and rolled me around in the surf, before spitting me back out, dazed and laughing. 🌊 There is the golf ball I scooped from the sand at the bottom of the sea bed off Bermuda in my second year of freediving. A hard won prize. 🌊 There are pine cones found in rivers and fossils uncovered on the Jurassic coast. Pieces of sea glass gathered from a red cove the day before I first swam the Dart 10k. Flat slates from my swim around Burgh Island. And many tiny shells, which my daughter collects when we swim together. 🌊 There are not many treasures to add to the pile this year. But when I look at all this it reminds me that I have done so much already. And there is always more to come. Have a great weekend xx 🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊

- JE CYCLUS, ADEMHALING EN ASTMA - Na mijn niet zo geslaagde fietswedstrijd van afgelopen zaterdag gooide ik het al even op het woord; je cyclus en astma. Tijd voor wat meer uitleg. 💡 Grappig feitje, voor de pubertijd hebben jongen 1,5x vaker astma dan meisjes. Na de pubertijd hebben vrouwen 2x zo vaak astma als mannen. Na de overgang neemt astma bij vrouwen weer af. De geslachtshormonen hebben hier duidelijk invloed op. 🌬 In de tweede fase van de menstruatiecyclus (de luteale fase ) ligt de ademhalingsfrequentie hoger en kan astma sneller getriggerd worden (perimenstruele astma ). Ongeveer 19-40% van de astmatische vrouwen blijkt dit wel eens te ervaren. Hoe dit precies werkt wordt nog niet helemaal begrepen, maar de hormoonfluctuaties en de hogere ontstekingsreacties in de tweede fase van de cyclus lijken de oorzaken. Bij het loslaten en afbreken van het baarmoederslijmvlies ontstaat zowel een lokale als systemische ontstekingsreactie, met daaruit voortvloeiende toename van ontstekingsmarkers in het longweefsel. Progesteron verhoogt het ademhalingsritme en oestrogeen kan ervoor zorgen dat het neusslijmvlies reactiever wordt voor histamine (een stofje waar je vast van hebt gehoord als je bekend met allergieën ). Als je hele hevige menstruaties hebt of veel duursport doet en meer risico hebt op een laag ijzer gehalte, kan kortademigheid nog verder versterkt worden omdat er überhaupt minder zuurstof rond kan gaan. Wat te doen? - Er zijn sowieso een boel dingen die je kunt aanpassen in de laatste fase van je cyclus om de boel een beetje ‘in toom’ te houden. Maar dat is weer een heel hoofdstuk voor een andere keer. - Zorg dat je oppast met andere dingen die jouw astma triggeren. - Als je merkt dat de klachten bij jou regelmatig voorkomen kun je eens met je arts kijken of het handig is in die periodes je medicatie aan te passen. Als je een vrouw met astma bent, herken je dit dan? P.s. Vandaag geen stukje buiten zwemmen in het open water of in het zonnige buiten zwembad, maar weer binnen met de regen tegen het glazen dak. 🏊🏻‍♀️

I am most excited to announce my partnership with @formswim . During my professional career as a swimmer, I have been very fortunate to work with great global companies from different sectors. This deal is different for me because I love this product and I use it everyday. I am also quite certain it will revolutionize the sport of swimming. Big claim you might say? Time will tell. But, remember who said it first! Sometimes, I forget my suit. I borrow one from one of my team mates. If I forget my goggles, however, I drive home to fetch them. True story! From the first time I used them back in June, I was fascinated with how accurate they were at first then I was hooked to the wealth of data it provided me post workouts. Traditionally, swimmers pick their goggles mostly for two simplistic reasons: 1. Eye protection 2. Esthetics. THis tech wearable device not only does those two things just fine but also a whole lot more. Please stay tuned for more information on why and how I use these goggles during my training for next summer’s Olympic Games. A huge thank you to @formswim for their trust and friendship. Special thanks to my good friends @dickensscotty and @mike2swim 🙏 #iswimwithform #swimming #swimmingpool #olympics #olympicchampion #goggles #openwaterswimming #openwater #openwaterswim #triathlon #triathlontraining
