Pre-race routine:

was ill this week, had cold, spent saturday aternoon ill in bed, decided not to race, didnt eat anything proper, was hot/cold with headache, decided not to race, got to 11pm thought take some paracetomal, get my kit ready just incase i feel better tomorrow, set alarm for 5.50am as needed to leave home at 7am, alarm went off, i turned it off decided not to race, then woke up at 7am and thought heck give it a go, i can always stop, so got up had banana clif bar and coffee and drove to lake
Event warmup:

  • 10m 20s
  • 400 meters
  • 02m 35s / 100 meters

about 40 in the wave, it is a shallow lake, so bunching was a problem, i was on people, people were on me, i ended up stopping let the bunch spread out an d then get going, so know this took up maybe 30 seconds of the total swim, plus i struggled with breathing due to m cold, so i recon i could have had a minute off this time

What would you do differently?:

be healthy & a better swimmer
