Anyone else do this yesterday? I know there was one other from this forum. What did you think? even though i have done that hill a hundred times over the past 3 years it still kicked my doing it four times in a row after the swim. Sikome is shallow. I don't deem to judge anyone but my husband told me I got passed by some people walking it. Do you think that would be considered "cheating" or is it like walking your bike you just do what you have to do. I also wondered if you were tall (which is everyone taller than me at 5 feet) that your hands would be touching the bottom alot of the time.

I did enjoy it though and the weather was perfect. With only 75 adults if was pretty relaxed. Thoughts?

I had planned on it but old ankle injury popped up and this was a C race at best for me and not worth further injury. I had gone down and did that hill four times the previous week and yah, it was tough.

I am on the fence on the walking in the water. One, triathlon is swimming, biking and running, learn to swim. Other , I do not want to discourage anybody on their first OWS. Tough call.

Will definitely try for next year.

My wife was signed up, but couldn't race as she injured herself on Saturday (clipless pedals incident...)

I completed the Olympic on Saturday.  Lots of fun!  Well... the first 2:30 was fun.  Too bad I wasn't even close to done.  Laughing

Training in the cold can be effective and fun with some planning. Overall, prepare for the environment, stay hydrated and dry, listen to your body and have a great safe cold weather outing.
