Pre-race routine:

This is a weekly open water swim race they do in Montreal on Wed nights.
There is a 1,2 and 4km version of the race.

Not an exciting race report, just noting it for future reference

I will update this every week rather than create new race reports

Event warmup:

500m warm up, one loop around course.
  • 15m 13s
  • 1000 meters
  • 01m 31s / 100 meters

This is a weekly race.

The course is probably a bit short, more like 970m vs 1000 but whatever....

Week 1 : 1000m, 15:13, = 1.31/100m
- Lap 1 : 7:31.5, Lap 2 (bit longer) : 7:42
- Nice swim, good sighting, practiced drafting
- Given the 2nd lap is a bit longer, it
was a pretty even split between 2 laps.

Week 2 : 1000m, 15:23 = 1:32/100m
- Lap 1 : 7:30.0, Lap 2 (bit longer) : 7:52
- Did not push last 1/4 of the race as hard as last week
- a little wind probably made a difference
- Did a good job sighting and swimming in straight line.

What would you do differently?:

Week 1 :
Maybe try going out a bit harder

Week 2 :
Push harder at end.

Event comments:

Will do it again, then do the 2km equivalent

Happy with the times, I kept a pretty even pace.
