Very good swim today. I got up at 0430 and was heading to Pineview at 0500. I sat there a few minutes waiting until the sun was up enough to at least see the buoys. I headed out once they were slightly visible and did the buoy route. After starting the 2nd loop, I noticed Kim was coming up behind me. I swam back to her and she and I did the 2nd loop together. She had to go after her first mile so I was solo for another 2 loops. Coming back in and debating whether to do one more loop or 2, I noticed my friend Lisa getting ready to get in. I asked her where she was going and she said she was doing the dam route. Perfect! This will be almost another 2 miles added on and with a friend. We swam to the dam then back again. When I was done, I looked at my GPS and it read 5.76 miles. I was very happy with this. Good swim today and I felt very comfortable and strong after getting warmed up for 1.5 miles. It does annoy me how long it takes me to get warmed up sometime. Once I get going though, I truly feel like I can hold that pace forever (given that I have food and water with me).
Total today was 5.76 miles AND this puts me at EXACTLY 200 miles of total training since I started keeping track this year!!!!!!!!!!!!
