Open Water

Just a few weeks left until Tri-Shark... Today I'm happy to report that I survived my first open water swim. It was an interesting experience.

Some random observations:

  • Dirty water + foggy goggles = Where the hell am I going.
  • The wetsuit made the 65ish degree water pretty nice. I was surprised.
  • The wetsuit provided alot of buoyancy. I could literally stop and float.
  • I had some breathing problems because I wasn't exhaling until my face was out of the water, which didn't leave me much time for getting a new breath.
  • Wow am I dirty now. I have sand in places sand should never be, and I'm still slippery from body glide.
