This was a practice for IMWI. I am very happy with my results! I was expecting to go 1:45 so I was shocked to see my time when I finally came out of the water. I got run over, feet grabbed and more than a few tried to squeeze me out of my line, but I held my line for the most part. I focused on full strokes and kicked hard and passed about 4-5 swimmers including someone in my ag that got 4th!
What would you do differently?:
Push harder. I think I could have taken the number 2 spot. And stayed around to collect my hardware! :(
Got out, stood around talking to Steve, Dave, Matt, Tony, Linda, Lisa, Neil, and Ben.
What limited your ability to perform faster:
Shoot, I may do this again just to see how fast I can do it!
