Pushing the boundaries will achieve results…

I’m now back from my Ironman training trip to Turkey, 20k of swimming in paradise at the blue lagoon without wetsuits in April – unbelievable.
Whilst swimming in crystal clear warm water dazzled by beautiful fish and surrounded by the awe-inspiring mountain landscape, reminded me of how we can push boundaries in anything we choose to do well. Take day two for example, I found myself in new swim territory, rather than my usual 2.5k round the lagoon session, Matt suggested we go for two laps this time – something I’d not contemplated before. 1.5hrs later we had completed the 5k two laps and felt elated with our achievement. Landscape photography can be seen in the same light when we are challenged with such difficult subject matter and tricky lighting conditions. Focusing the mind and a little patience will achieve results!

Where to next time – 3, 4 or even 5 laps….
