Swam briefly in the Gulf

I am so slow. Starting swim training this week. No panic issues anymore, so now it's time to pick up the pace!
Transition 1
  • 02m 9s

Pretty good transition, considering there was a long run up the beach.

Slower than last year, but I haven't been training as much. It shows!

Decent transition
