On Sunday it was the first swim of the Ocean Swim Series and I was SO looking forward to it. The swim only started at 9 but I got there at about 7 just to check out the water etc. I registered for the 2 km swim as the sea was flat, clear and it looked lovely. It was slightly cold but other than that it looked to be perfect. Hmmmmmm!!!!!! I got about 20m and had to turn round. My shoulder totally bombed out on me and was in absolute agony!!! So much for taking a weeks rest and thinking it would be fine. I now have booked a physio appointment for Wednesday!
Then this morning – I failed my exam!! And yes I have got the results back so it is not just a feeling. I needed to get 75% to pass and I only got 68%. That sucks big time!
So who knows why I am feeling happy, but long may it continue. Maybe it is a nervous reaction to failing????
Very ironically as I walked out the exam room and put on my phone I received a message from UNISA (not who I was writing this exam with) saying “Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success. Good luck/ endurance and wisdom towards your exams”. Talk about perfect timing!!!
I write my UNISA exams at the end of the month. Before that I need to write this one again and then another – all before Friday!
