Swim questions

White Lake Half Ironman Triathlon Swim Start 055

OK.  Somebody tell me I just miscounted my laps.  I tried swimming this morning with my tri-singlet on because I am going to swim with it in the triathlon in a week and a half (gulp!).  Either I missed a lap or I swam over a minute slower…?  I thought it would make me a little faster?


I spent the last 5 days down at the lake (of the Ozarks) at a conference and admittedly didn’t work out as much as I should have or eat as well as I should.  So this morning was my pennance.  The first half of the workout I felt like I couldn’t catch my breath and I had no rhythm.  Only after my unsuccessful attempt at a faster 450 did I feel like I kind of loosened up and started swimming OK again.  Swimming is weird for me.  I feel better at the end of a set than I do in the beginning.  I want to quit for the first half and don’t want to stop at the end.

I really need somebody to tell me how I’m going to get in outdoor swim training between now and my first open water swim in just over a month.  I have no clue.  Unless it warms up drastically over the next two weeks, the water won’t be warm enough to swim in and I don’t have a wetsuit.  Any ideas?
