🏊♀️500m ocean swim + 🚴♀️12k waterfront ride this morning. Love love love it! Wasn't sure how I'd go as I tried a boxing🥊fitness class at the gym two days ago - great fun and v tough workout, alas my entire body has been aching since yesterday like I was actually in a ring fighting 😂 So took it slow today, and felt good. Some excitment in the water as folks on the jetty shouting down that there was a dolphin in with us! Sadly we didn't spot it ourselves but it was a thrill to know he / she was there 😊 (did shout back asking them if certain was dolphin...🦈😂). Ride was great, all waterfront 🌊 and adore my new bike 💙 (but *must* get cycle shorts asap cuz well, truth is, bruised bits! Sorry tmi but now I get those weird outfits cyclists wear 😂 )Anyhoo. Beautiful Autumn morning! Wish everyone great workouts today! X #swimbikerun#oceanswim#ride#getoutside#getafterit#takenothingforgranted#gratitude

Eye on the prize. I have worn #swedishgoggles my entire life and i don’t plan to change anytime soon. They are cheap. They are reliable and they are super simple to assemble and fix. No i am not sponsored by them, they just rock. I mean i can get a pair for $4. Tell me anything you have bought for that price that you can use daily for years and have it perform every time? Nothing. I’m super stoked every time i get in the water. I feel so alive and i feel as though i am back where i belong. God made me to swim. I’m still looking for my gills. #jimmydonahoo

I need help for my Black Dog Institute fundraiser for a swim event this Sunday. I am swimming 1Km to raise funds and awareness for people suffering depression, read the link below for my story and why I chose this great cause 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 *kooky video for your attention😆 I do not own the rights to ‘Help by The Beatles’. If I did... I probably wouldn’t need help to donate money to this great cause 😆👍🏻 Please share 👍🏻 https://teamblackdog.everydayhero.com/au/cooly-black-dog-fundraiser
Time is always relative during a long swim. Some parts seem to drag on forever, while others seemingly compress from hours to seconds. The secret is finding that flow state and getting deep into it. Breathe in, breathe out; stroke left, pull right. In this way, it is much like meditation.
This time, it flew.

the only way to celebrate a public holiday is to sit by the sparkling ocean and never take it for granted 🤗🙌🏼
Be not the slave of your own past - plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep, and swim far, so you shall come back with new self-respect, with new power, and with an advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old. 🌊
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Eyyoo! Very stoked to have been chosen as one of the 10 nominees for the June cover of @triathletemag 💛! I turn 30 this June and managed to hit my goal of completing my first full Ironman by 30 (which I achieved last November), so to be able to share my story in their mag would be very fitting 📰! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Felt weird nominating myself, but hey, when an opportunity presents itself sometimes you need to man up and take charge 👊🏽. If you watched my stories today you’d know that I think it’s really important to not only realize your potential, but seize the moment and not wait for anyone to do it for you. There’s a strong chance that I’d be sitting here at 29, not having finished an Ironman or traveled to every country in the world, had I waited for the right person to tell me “you can do it” or had I waited until enough money rolled in upfront to make it easier, or a friend to come along, etc. I could have slacked and not achieved had I made excuses for myself and waited for the right moment. Instead, I had to set a TIME goal, believe in my power, and work hard every single day to make both those things happen. #hussleiseverything 🧳
When the world tells you no or that you can’t or that you shouldn’t, that should be your cue to be the best motivator for yourself that you can be, prove ‘em wrong, and inspire others in the process. Trust in yourself, listen to that positive, roaring voice, and give everything in life a shot. You deserve it. 🔥
By the way... to the link in my bio to vote for your favorite traveling triathlete 😜🌍🏃🏼♀️🏊🏼♀️🚴🏼♀️!
