Comments:

My 5k split was 1:16:23.3 which is just under 2m slower than my best 5k at that venue. My 10k time was about 8m faster than my previous best 10k fresh water swim at Lake Toba, Indonesia.

Overall not too bad for a week after Ironman but I still would have liked to go faster.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of swim training and maybe Ironman a week earlier.

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.
