I wore my watch so knew my time and heart rate, but the number analyzer in me wanted to know my exact distance. If I didn't have a list of things to buy for my bike a mile long I'd be thinking of adding an upgraded Garmin to my list of things to purchase in the next month or two...maybe I can ask for one for a birthday or something...
And then it was time to head home again. It was such a great night, and it was really nice to be able to swim without thinking about much more than staying straight and thinking about my stroke. Between this group and the swim team practice that I went to two Wednesdays ago, it seems I'll always have somewhere to go on Wednesdays for a great swim! And I'll be doing that from now on! Even when I'm back to running I plan to continue my swimming and biking to prepare for my upcoming triathlons as well as any others that might pop up on my calendar.
Do you get in the ocean when you go on vacation or does it make you nervous?
Do you open water swim? Where?
If you've done or plan to do a triathlon, how frequently do your incorporate open water swimming versus pool swimming into your routine?
