LONG

DISTANCE

THE JOY AND PAIN OF ULTRA DISTANCE OPEN WATER SWIMMING. JAQUELYN SPENT TWO YEARS TRAINING TOWARDS A 40KM SWIM ACROSS LAKE TAUPO. WETSUITS WERE DISCARDED FOR THE EXTRA CHALLENGE OF ONLY WEARING A ONE PIECE SWIMSUIT. THE TRAINING INVOLVED COLD ACCLIMATION LIKE BEING COVERED IN SNOW, ONLY HAVING COLD SHOWERS AND SLEEPING WITHOUT BLANKETS THROUGHOUT WINTER.
