3rd place, well done Lauren

Lauren did her first open water swim at Mornington last weekend, it was 1.2km and she came third!! I am so pleased for her, the triathlon training has had to take a back step with her Achilles tendon problems, she has been hobbling round since August and has seen doctors, physios, sports therapists,a sports podiatrist, you name it and she has seen them. At last we have a diagnosis, acute inflammation of the tendon sheaths and as treatment has not helped, she is going to need an operation. So swimming, without using her legs has been the only training she has been able to do, not one to be put off competing, she decided to do this, just for the fun of it, not expecting to come anywhere, so no one was more delighted with the result than Lauren.
