One swim. Size Large.
Might be with an inner shark.
Probably somewhere with a good view.
If found, placate with a cookie or two, and send back to me.
More cookies as a reward. Thank you.
I tried to swim this am and it didn't go well. 200 m intervals. Started slow, and got slower. I couldn't believe the first 50 m was 55 seconds. I thought it would be under 50 seconds, and the second 50 m was about the same. The next 100 m were 60 seconds each. Barf. Tried harder the next time, with the same results. The next one I tried to relax a bit and slide through the water rather than powering through it for the first 50 m, and that was 60 seconds. The rest of the 50 m were even slower. I was horrified. It went downhill from there, and I stopped. I see no reason to practice doing badly. The dive tank was empty so I did some core and stretching. .5 hr total.
I'm seriously beginning to think that I've forgotten how to swim. Going back through my blog I realize the last good swim I had was the beginning of May or so. I used to think that swimming was my best sport of the three. Now I've lost confidence. Last year I struggled with the swim a bit, and it came together during the races. The struggle is worse this year, and it hasn't come together for the races.
And the number is up again, 232. Here I thought I'd been good about eating.
I'm going to go for a nice walk down in Fish Creek later today, and listen to the river, and the wind through the trees. That should be relaxing.
