Der Weg ist das Ziel

The woman of the lake (as A. now calls me) successfully swam 1.5km in Zurich lake this afternoon, for the Credit Suisse Business "Firmentriathlon" Team!

Our name? "Der Weg ist das Ziel" (ie The journey is the goal).

I wasn't last by any means - took me about 40 minutes - and was well in the pack of 250 swimmers.

I discovered that I am strong and stubborn. Despite dreadful totm pain (and crying the bathroom in the early hours of this morning) I still took part. Am completely bushed now though and unfortunately could not stay to see my team finish. Bed and painkillers were calling.

More photos, timings and details tomorrow! Oh, and the weather was dreadful, grey and raining - but the water temperature not too bad.
