I know the water is still freezing over on some nights. Has anyone been in the open water or have any temperature readings?

Good question! Any plungers yet (other than Nuckleheads)? I was thinking Stiles,Upper Mystic or even Walden may be shallow enough to warrant sticking more than a toe in soon.

With my first triathlon of the season a little less than three weeks away I squeezed into my wetsuit ( an 8 min process) and took an cold shower.... Then creating a monster... Who proceeded to shed wet suit drive to spectacle pond squeeze back into my wetsuit and jump into the pond.... Which until my face hit the water was much much warmer than I expected....

I learned in this race that in order to finish the swim, you have to know where you are going. And in order to know where you are going, you have to learn to sight.

Stroke after stroke, my pace was pulling me out into the middle of the lake quickly. The cover seemed to be getting thicker. But still in the distance, the little boathouse was my lighthouse.

The swim is ALWAYS a cause for concern when it comes to competing in a triathlon. This is the event for which you need to concentrate on RELAXING.
