This week was a good training week with strong swims, light jogging and some gentle work on the bike. Today should have been the cherry on top, a swim to finish of the week.

I got to the pool (which is by far the hardest part) and started getting undressed. Now in case you had not picked up on it I am not what you would call an exhibitionist. Basically I am a shy guy who does not like taking his shirt off in public let alone stripping down.

So there I was in a freezing changing room, naked as the day I was born, ready to change into my Speedo's. I took out my towel, goggles, ear plugs and swimming top only to discover that I could not find my Speedo's. I was determined to swim (after all I had walked there) so I started to go through every part of my bag to see if the speeds were in a different section.

Whilst naked

I was taking things out of my bag, shaking my bag and looking in pockets that were to small even for Speedo's. I was a naked man possessed.

After about a minute of increasingly frantic searching it dawned on me

I was naked.

At that point I admitted defeat, got dressed and left the pool

Mental note

Unpack before getting undressed

better this than turning up to a race (that you'd driven to) and found you'd forgotton your cycling shoes.

I would rather be clothes and shoeless rather than naked....

I'm not sure I'm doing this domment thing right. It says, "You are currently posting as Kristy Use a different account." So I'm putting in my name and URL instead.

Anyway, sounds like you had an experience at the pool! Was it co-ed? :o)

And now I'll try it the other way...I'm sorry! But it's the only way for me to figure it out so... You can just delete this post-if it shows up. :o)

It was not co-ed (that is a slice of good luck for everyone involved!)
