Pre-race routine:

Road my beater bike up to Chesbro Reservoir. Had Dr. Armen work on shoulder. Very low key, fun event.
Event warmup:

None. Swim is my warmup!
  • 39m 12s
  • 2112 yards
  • 01m 52s / 100 yards

This was a good swim for me. I'm going to call it a fresh water PR! About 2 minutes faster than Boise, which shows what not standing around for an hour shivering will do for performance. Felt like I sighted well, swam straight, and had a good swim.
What would you do differently?:

Need to incorporate more kick sets into prep for Arizona. Hips got a little tired towards the end. Suit felt like it fit pretty good, not sure if need a new one for Az.

Warm down:

Road bike home.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Felt like it was a good swim. Happy with performance.

Event comments:

Nice event. Very low key. Started on time, course well laid out. One more buoy on back side might have been nice.
