Besides the ever-changing weather the run last night was pretty enjoyable. We went a little over six miles around the lakes. I stayed in the middle of the group to keep a moderate pace. I wanted my last main run before this weekend to be solid and it was. It wasn’t too fast or two slow, it was just a good steady pace. My legs felt good and I’m looking forward to the race on Sunday. I just hope the day starts off cool, because they are calling for temps to be about 90.
If the rain holds off enough today we will do our first open water swim of the season. With the warmer temps the water should be pretty bearable with a wetsuit on. We’ll see how our nubies handle the switch to open water. My guess is that they will do fine. They have met and exceeded everything we done to date. I’m looking forward to getting back in the open water. Simply for the benefits of wearing a wetsuit; me without a wetsuit = slow swimmer, me with a wetsuit = slightly faster slow swimmer –feeling like I’m cruising through the water…
