Picked up my neighbor at 0400 and up to JN. Was in the water by 0500 and the sun was JUST peaking over the mountains. There were still a lot of stars to view. I did one lap with my neighbor. She is training for triathlons. After one lap, she got out to run and I kept going. I felt okay for mile 2 and a bit junky at 3. I had the time so I did a 4th. The 4th mile I felt great. My pulls were solid and I could feel myself cruising along at a good pace. I finished today at 4 miles and as I was leaving, thought once again, "that's it?" I LOVE the fact that I am at the point where I think 3 or 4 mile swims are a joke and can be easily done.
I am tapering down and only doing 15 this week so I can't go nuts on the swimming. I am getting excited and eager for Tahoe.
