Can I take a 6 pm place?

How late in the year do you offer the open water swimming? Really keen but recovering slowly from a broken collarbone at the moment.

Am I ok to come along to one? 7pm if possible

Where is this? Looks amazing. Being a complete novice do you need a wetsuit? But then guess it’s no different to swimming in the sea?

Below is more good news from British Triathlon which will allow us to develop the club activity further over the coming weeks. It is not back to normal but heading that way.

Dear TriHarman-Norfolk,

We are delighted that swim, bike, run events and activity can resume across England.

From today, event organisers, including clubs in England can apply to British Triathlon for a permit and permitted events can take place from 25 July. Event organisers of all sizes will be required to demonstrate that they are able to deliver their event in a Covid-19 Secure manner.

British Triathlon has created detailed Covid-19 event permitting requirements to guide organisers and facilities in running activity within government guidelines and with social distancing and hygiene measures in place. You can find this on the [Event Organisers system here.](britishtriathlon.us1.list-manage.com/track/click?u=b16546c4008c5b51344988c82&id=3c536eea76&e=4bd0...)

From 18 July, clubs and coaches can organise activities for more than six people outdoors in England, provided they do so in a Covid-19 Secure manner. Comprehensive guidance is available on the website for clubs and coaches – [click here to find out more.](britishtriathlon.us1.list-manage.com/track/click?u=b16546c4008c5b51344988c82&id=3e40a17f87&e=4bd0...)

Events in Scotland and Wales are not currently able to take place but both home nations continue to work with their respective governments to ensure a safe return to activity as soon as conditions allow.

If your club is also registered as an Event Organiser, your events contact will also receive an email regarding hosting events.

To find the next event scheduled, [please visit our event finder.](britishtriathlon.us1.list-manage.com/track/click?u=b16546c4008c5b51344988c82&id=17d4fb7e64&e=4bd0...)

Thank you for your patience and support through these challenging times.

Recreational sports can resume across England
PUBLISHED: 9TH JULY 2020

British Triathlon and Triathlon England are pleased with the latest UK government update that recreational sport can resume across England.
On 9 July, the UK government announced that, alongside the reopening of sports facilities, people can get back to outdoor sport and participation events.

The British Triathlon team will now work through the latest information and will share updated and detailed triathlon specific guidance early next week.

Andy Salmon, British Triathlon Chief Executive, said: “We are all excited to get our swim, bike, run community back into action. We want to thank the government and colleagues at Sport England for working alongside us to find a safe way for our sport to resume.

“We ask that our community bear with us while we finalise our guidance and ensure that when you return to the sport you can do so in a safe and straightforward way. We are also delighted to see a plan for the opening of pools, indoor gyms and sport facilities across England.”

Found this article from Swim Smooth from 4 years ago but it still rings true.

Triathletes and open water swimmers are often split into two categories, those looking to compete and those who just want to complete.

"Completers" love setting themselves a challenge which feels a little scary but creates a real buzz of excitement at the same time. They use that heady mix of fear and excitement for motivation to train for the big day. They try to fit training and racing in around their normal life and see their chosen sport as part of a bigger picture.

"Competers" on the other hand are all about performance. Just finishing an event isn't enough, it's about where they place and improving on their previous performances. They train hard and can't help but get a little obsessed about how things are going. Rather than fitting training around their lives they end up fitting life around their training.

Unfortunately Competers often look down on Completers thinking "If you just trained harder and believed in yourself a bit more, you could be so much faster than you are". And whilst that's undoubtably true, would getting more focused ultimately make them happier?

The thing is Completers are very good at something that Competers are very bad at: letting themselves win. They set a challenging goal but something that is actually achievable and feel great when they reach that goal.

Allow yourself to celebrate before you even start!

Competers on the other hand tend to set their goals just out of reach so they rarely hit them. Or, when they do hit them, immediately move their targets higher again. Rather than taking satisfaction from training hard and doing their best, they judge themselves and their self worth from their pure performance. All too often things end in failure: "I was 2 seconds per 100m slower than I should be" or "If I hadn't got that injury 2 months ago I could be winning my age group".

You should never be unhappy if you've given it all you've got.

If you are one of those competitive types, take a leaf out of the Completers book and occasionally give yourself a pat on the back, taking satisfaction from doing your best. Not your best as in the best you ever could be if you didn't have a job and never got sick and all the stars aligned on race day... but your best given there was a howling gale on race day, you had to go on that business trip and yes, your husband doesn't understand.

In a nutshell: let it go and let yourself win occasionally.

Swim Smooth!

Yup definitely a completer me 😊

Not only a completer but also right at the back! More interested in journeys than racing - but those events don't exist 🙃 Have been so so happy to get back in the lake though!

So true! I’m a completer.

As I become older I am becoming a completer as my body is telling me. I still have that competitor inside me but my mind is telling me does it matter anymore Nigel!
