Great swim today. I got up around 0600 and left for Pineview. I was going to get a long swim in with Chad but something came up and he couldn't make it. I got there and when I was getting ready, I ran into Annie Stanish. It was good seeing her and I was excited to see her at Pineview and not in a pool. I LOVE getting people out of the pool routine and into open water. So different and I haven't had one person yet not completely love it. I doubt she's different. Proof is that she signed up for the 5k at Deer Creek next Saturday! We agreed to meet up to swim on Tuesday.
I wanted to do at least a marathon swim so I did the buoy route then a dam route. On the 2nd dam route, I turned south and followed the red buoys until I got to shore. I then headed west until I saw the white cigarette buoys then followed them back in. Did another buoy route then checked my GPS. I was JUST under 6.2 miles so I headed out for 100 strokes then came back. 6.27....DONE!
Felt crappy first 2 miles but then got better and felt better about my pulls and effort after that. A bit tired when I got out but I knew if I had some food I could have kept going. I'm good for the 10 mile. Time to taper!
6.27 miles OW
