Open water

Went for an open water swim this morning. I've been told that it's about two miles. Finished in about 1:05 - 1:06 (forgot to turn my stopwatch off). All I had before the swim was a gel (up at 5:00, swimming by 5:30). I was starved after the swim. Good news is that my stroke felt nice and fluid and I covered the distance with no trouble. Of course, there were not a million bodies all over the place.

Legs feel like they are recovering nicely - we'll see how the intervals go tomorrow.

Done for the day!


  1. interesting. i've though about trying a gel or something before i train in the morning because i never eat first. I wonder if it would help.

  2. Where did u swim? Lake T?
