Last night marked the first swim of the 2013 Triathlon season.
The water was freezing! My expectations were low...first few swims of the season are usually only 500m or so. They are typically painful and I usually want to die.
This year I was pleasantly surprised that I felt strong in the water! my goal was to do a warm up, then 10x50m, with 10sec rest between each set. Afterwards, I thought, I can keep going and did a nice slow 300m for fun!
Half marathon is in 6 weeks, sprint triathlon in 7 weeks.
Oh, and two more weeks of the CF Open, which has been fairly uneventful for me. Just doing the wods---no PRs, no world records, just having fun and trying not to get injured!
