Perth, Western Australia

Total Time = 1h 13m 47s

Age Group Rank = 8/32
Event warmup:

First 2k was my warmup
  • 1h 13m 47s
  • 5000 meters
  • 01m 29s / 100 meters

I wore my wetsuit for this swim to see how I would go. It is the first time I have swim with one and may be the last.

My time was faster than it would have been without due to my lack of swim fittness but I think any time I gain at my ironman attempt will be lost, possibly multiple times over, when I have to take it off.

I may just wear my fast skin.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

A general lack of swim fitness due to ironman training

MAPS is Meditation, Acclimatization, Practice, and Strategy, which are key for giving you the confidence and skills to execute the open-water swim in a triathlon well.

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.

Some are getting a little OWS practice in, others are strategizing, the rest are just plain scared.
