Testing Swimming Fitness

Testing out my swimming fitness at a time trial event at the Kiwanis pool

It turned out to be a family affair – with both my son Caleb and me having our first races with a mixture of the Master’s Swim group that I train with and a few of the kids from the West Park Aquatics Club that Caleb attends.  It was great fun to do this with Caleb.

I learned to dive off the blocks for the first time and “raced” all in the same day. I swam the 200m freestyle (3:10. 67) and 800m freestyle (13:24.87).  Caleb raced the 50m freestyle (38.84) and 100m ( 1:31.70) freestyle.     We had fun just experimenting with racing.  A good test of our current fitness levels and a place to improve from in the coming months.

About Janine Moffett

I am a mother of three incredible children, work full time as an instructor therapist, and love to run. I have run 11 marathons, with a personal best of 2:57. This past April I ran my third Boston Marathon. I love challenges and began exploring the world of triathlons in 2014. I completed my first half Ironman at Muskoka in fall 2014 and came first in my age group. Now I am taking on the challenge of a Full Ironman, which I am planning for September, 2015. I believe we need to keep trying new things and embrace life to the fullest. I hope I can provide inspiration and insights to others.
