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?
