Did 6000 straight today.  I felt GREAT!  Stopped every 2000 for hydration and food trials.  Learned that taking a bit of banana and eating it makes me sick 500 yards later.  Taking a bite and mushing it in my mouth until it's baby food THEN swallowing is ok.

Finished entire swim including eating breaks in 1:47.
 Felt really good when done.  I'm feeling more confident about my upcoming swims and any doubts about finishing them are slowly going away.


  1. Nice job Goody that's a great strategy, 2000, feed, 2000, feed. Also good that you were able to find a way to get that banana to go easy on your stomach.

    One other thing to consider for the June 11th swim: Sun exposure. Do you tan well? If so, you might want to get some sun (once it becomes available!) well in advance of June 11th, so you don't burn. Either that or get a big bottle of waterproof sunscreen.

  2. Noted. I'll work on getting a bit of sun when it shows up and I'll have my sunscreen lotion ready regardless. Thanks for the reminder.
